Crepuscular Creation

I was excreted through a pore [best boy]

And of this dream will speak no more [Daddy]

Lest men should frown or apes disdain [The Agent Apsley]

On this or some higher plane [nomi]

I was excised from every book [Roland]

Words amassed beside the brook, [Stacy]

Twisting on a golden hook [nomi]

That shattered peace with every look [The Agent Apsley]

Intent on death, I jumped the nest [best boy]

And landed in a plate of thorns [The Agent Apsley]

Which goes to show that breaking rules [TG]

Can punish flesh, and soul reborn [best boy & slim jig]

Fixed on life, I spread my wings [The Agent Apsley]

I soared above so many things [nomi]

Which doesn't help my case at all, [Stacy]

Wings disappear, and down I fall. [best boy]
