350000000 dead

Towns cheer and citizens march with lilted and joyful hearts at the sight of the funeral equipment convoying through their streets. Matériel strains massive tractors that fill both lanes and require entire power grids to be dismantled.  The shadows cast on bay windows and the high frequency screams of the pavement under their tires and treads give away their presence, even at night with the lights off and shutters locked. Rand Paul is sometimes seen riding a load, his cowboy hat making bone cracking and tree felling sounds that somehow fill closed spaces and continue after he disappears over the horizon.

Overnight, the bedside water-tumblers of Rand Paul’s network of friends spontaneously generate singular flawless calves’ eyes. The eyes,  representing the clarity and purity, of both vision and thought required to imagine the new world of just actions. Just actions that the resurrection will force about for the fortunate and faithful.  These eyes are immediately consumed by the blessed followers, who have spent the past twenty-four months calming filling all bodies of government and business and laying the groundwork for the deft bit of financial action which will direct all remaining fluid currency in the world towards the formulation of a specially impervious metal alloy and the casting of that alloy into the many ritual knives, each one to be placed at the head of each of a reinforced concrete funerary trough. Twenty-four months ago Rand Paul, who was given a message by and through the immaterial realm, large carp swam into his bedroom, gazed at him, and spoke to him.  Rand  recognized this male fish as a sacred missive and slit him open.  The guts heaped upon the heated wooden panel floor and formed a sign – the split staff of wheat. He knew to choose thousands of his male followers to become the new semi solid mass who would forge  the ritual knives, and precede the renewal of many edifices.

With each man accepting this, being tainted by politics and central government administration along with its regulation of commerce, he would become, like his knives, sacred. He would not be killed or sacrificed, and so never resurrected.  One by one, each man accepted his fate, then, consuming his eye, he recites the  threnody as one of 200,000 beautiful, pounding of a joyous tenor, bass, and alto voices:

We will be lone


We will be chemical


We will be the beds of flower beds


Upon which the resurrected may make love


350,000,000 dead will come awake in paradise


We 200,000 dead will remain sacred and silent beneath their feet


This is enough


This is enough

 The constellation Sachi-fouix 2 is now underneath the Armenian rifleman’s star, which shines through small hollows in the grating covering the canopies of the largest grave machines.

And there is the highest star, which is called by Rand Paul, Sumsoun. Rand takes out an album, with Samo Mun written on its cover, and struggles to speak about it.   He states the he likes that in life, it shone. He addresses thank yous to this star. It is set to die on the day of the completion of his father’s funeral city.  

Rand locks his oil rigging gloves with a twist in the palm, and fits his hand around my wrist. “Your wrist is a field. My soldiers are garden genius.  They play outdoor games.”–He points to 10 figures in the distance, smashing shovels and picks against a palm tree. “We learned it  on the Congolaisse border when we searched for growing caverns." 

His voice fails as a convoy of trucks smashes through the bush,  meters from where we stand.  Their beds are filled to pyramid points with shining wet stones.  The drivers’ faces are impossible to make out through the ash on their windows. 

Rand unfolds a survival rifle from his pack, it’s covered in yellow twisted bits of bark.   His bloused boots shake out luminous black mineral shards as he moves.   He aims it at me and says:

"Avoid the world’s plats, history and reflection are unavailable, my father’s teeth are the unbelievable beak .  His bones grow now, and the light of the stars fills him. The Funeral City can build itself. We are only here to protect our constituents.” He glares at me through a veil and sunglasses. 

And as the rocks under our feet began to sing in short bursts, naming stars now visible in the sky, I feel 15 blows.  Blood calmly seeps into my eyes, and I scramble for a deeper part of the forest plateau.  I hear Rand’s machine fire up and thunder away. Was there a new messenger? The rocks sang “Ron Paul Funeral City, 350000000 dead.”

day breaks and they march to the buzz of rain, they who now thicken our western roads and churn cold fields to mud

the invading conquered-and-reconquering, bringing along the detritus of a life, tokens imbued with a memorial power:

    – always she has a stale green and white ribboned mint, snatched from a porcelain bowl at the wake, a display which implied a public offer tho’ she felt a thief anyways

    – in one pocket, a note of apology that led to further encounters

    – in another’s case, her nightshirt concealed, scent long diffused from the fabric,

           kept as a sigil as her echo fades and an ever-growing framework of memories obscure the structures beneath

    – a printed orange slip of high-density polyethylene whose meaning would later be inverted upon itself and made wrong

against foul riptides, through choking clouds, bypassing trapped bridges to leprous islands, here, through the industrial district

furnaces growl and pistons rally to power the jet-lungs, the Breath of the Son who exhales the atmos of our Landmark Dome

    each turns in passing, burned limbic pathways unable to accept another unspeakable disquiet 

a shiver, a fleeting haunt, the freezing immediacy when the eyes meet, an unstable state teetering over criticality

an out-of-spectrum waveform thrown as the Leviathan’s coils grip flush with our plane, necessarily put from the mind

    perhaps a trick of the shifting weather patterns

to permit ourselves few words and fewer possessions, live purified

(or emptied of excess, if you prefer)

in them; by them; we bear only:

    - their piece of the One Moment which banishes all else

    - a complaint of the Earth itself

    - whispers, or mirth swallowed-back 

    - a cause for the walking mausoleum

    - all his joy

Sintering machines line the causeway stretching from the outskirts of the city to an accessory marble  complex. They buzz, day and night, fabricating angels’ wings to be bolted onto some of the beloved that may soon stand  along this path. independent citizens, freethinkers all, may grasp bugles, hewn from the texas longhorn, waiting to trumpet the arrival of the pre relics to their final allocations. The future may end , all may stand on the edge of time. 350,000,000 dead.
