Same ness (poem)

solomon

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXAMPLE OF LINGUISTIC POETRY WRITTEN BY JOXUA LUXOR, HE IS A PHILOLOGIST AND A LINGUISTIC PHILOSOPHER, THIS POEM IS WRITTEN AS A MEMORY PEG DEVICE TO SHOW HOW HISTORICAL LEAVE TRACES IN THE EVOLUTION OF OUR LANGUAGE:

Wise King Solomon, the king of peace, made them the same, he gave them a new name, the Same-ites but in order to do that one of them he had to shame.  

Those who can respect the authority of reason on the right, those that only respect violence on the left, one of them sinister, one of them righteous.  The sheep get the Shepherd’s Crook the goats get the flail.  

As it was then, so it is again.  They can not atone, because they are not at one, which is why they can not attune, their attention is in the wrong place. 

king-tut

They demand to hear gods real name, Shemhamphorasch, but they are deaf to it, it singes their ears.  they are incapable of accepting their status in life.  

They cling to their sibboleths and we to our shibboleths, a man cannot slave for too masters, for either one serves  The Goddess of Reason, or one slaves for Mammon. It is a sisibilantie that binds. Sibil disobedience. 

Two brothers apparently alike in form but completely different in spirit.

AT THIS POINT JOXUA WILL POST SOME DEFINITIONS TO CLARIFY HIS CRYPTIC, VAGUE, AND ESOTERIC REFERENCES:

Shalom (שָׁלוֹם) (Sephardic Hebrew/Israeli Hebrew: shalom; Ashkenazi Hebrew/Yiddish: sholom, sholem, sholoim, shulem) is a Hebrew word meaning peace, completeness, prosperity, and welfare and can be used idiomatically to mean bothhello and goodbye.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shalom

 

SolomonLook up Solomon at Dictionary.commasc. proper name, Biblical name of David’s son, king of Judah and Israel and wisest of all men, from Greek Solomon, from Hebrew Sh’lomoh, from shelomo “peaceful,” from shalom “peace.” The Arabic form is Suleiman. The common medieval form was Salomon (Vulgate, Tyndale, Douai); Solomon was used in Geneva Bible and KJV. Used allusively for “a wise ruler” since 1550s. Related: Solomonic; Solomonian. The Solomon Islands were so named 1568 by Spanish explorers in hopeful expectation of having found the source of the gold brought to King Solomon in I Kings ix:29.  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Solomon

 

In linguistics and ethnology, Semitic (from the BiblicalShem“, Hebrew: שם‎) was first used to refer to a language family ofWest Asian origin, now called the Semitic languages. This family includes the ancient and modern forms of Ahlamu, Akkadian,Amharic, Ammonite, Amorite, Arabic, Aramaic/Syriac, Canaanite (Phoenician/Carthaginian/Hebrew), Chaldean, Eblaite,Edomite, Ge’ez, Old South Arabian, Modern South Arabian, Maltese, Mandaic, Moabite, Sutean, Tigre and Tigrinya, andUgaritic, among others.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic_people

 

Shem (Hebrew: שֵם, ModernShemTiberianŠēm ; Greek: ΣημSēm; Ge’ez: ሴም, Sēm; “renown; prosperity; name”; Arabic:سامSām) was one of the sons of Noah in the Hebrew Bible as well as in Islamic literature. He is popularly regarded as the eldest son, though some regard him as the second son. According to some Rabbinic traditions, Shem was born without a foreskin (aposthia); which may indicate a basis for circumcision that predates the covenant of Abraham.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shem

 

A shibboleth (/ˈʃɪbəlɛθ/[1] or /ˈʃɪbələθ/[2]) is a word or custom whose variations in pronunciation or style can be used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups. Within the mindset of the ingroup, a connotation or value judgment of correct/incorrect or superior/inferior can be ascribed to the two variants.

 

Gilead then cut Ephraim off from the fords of the Jordan, and whenever Ephraimite fugitives said, ‘Let me cross,’ the men of Gilead would ask, ‘Are you an Ephraimite?’ If he said, ‘No,’ they then said, ‘Very well, say “Shibboleth” (שבלת).’ If anyone said, “Sibboleth” (סבלת), because he could not pronounce it, then they would seize him and kill him by the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites were killed on this occasion.

Judges 12:5–6, NJB  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibboleth
 
Sibilance is a manner of articulation of fricative and affricateconsonants, made by directing a stream of air with the tongue towards the sharp edge of the teeth, which are held close together; a consonant that uses sibilance may be called a sibilant. Examples of sibilants are the consonants at the beginning of the English words sip, zip, ship, chip, and Jeep, and the second consonant in vision. The symbols in theInternational Phonetic Alphabet used to denote the sibilant sounds in these words are, respectively, [s] [z] [ʃ] [tʃ] [dʒ] [ʒ]. (The sounds [tʃ] [dʒ], as in chip and Jeep, are affricates; the rest are fricatives.) Sibilants have a characteristically intense sound, which accounts for their non-linguistic use in getting one’s attention (e.g. calling someone using “psst!” or quieting someone using “shhhh!”).  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sibilant
 
The Cult of Reason (French: Culte de la Raison)a was a belief system established in France and intended as a replacement for Christianity during the French Revolution.[1]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_of_Reason
 
Mammon /ˈmæmən/, in the New Testament of the Bible, is material wealth or greed, most often personified as a deity, and sometimes included in the seven princes of Hell.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammon
 
Early mentions of Mammon appear to stem from the personification in the Gospels, e.g., Didascalia, “Do solo Mammona cogitant, quorum Deus est sacculus”; and Saint Augustine, “Lucrum Punice Mammon dicitur” (Serm. on Mt., ii). Gregory of Nyssa also asserted that Mammon was another name for Beelzebub.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammon
 
Beelzebul claims to cause destruction through tyrants, to cause demons to be worshipped among men, to excite priests to lust, to cause jealousies in cities and murders, and to bring on war.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub#Testament_of_Solomon
 

An Ifrit is mentioned in the Qur’an, Sura An-Naml (27:39-40):

An ifrit (strong one) from the jinn said: “I will bring it to you before you rise from your place. And verily, I am indeed strong, and trustworthy for such work.” One with whom was knowledge of the Scripture said: “I will bring it to you within the twinkling of an eye!” Then when Solomon saw it placed before him, he said: “This is by the Grace of my Lord – to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And whoever is grateful, truly, his gratitude is for (the good of) his ownself; and whoever is ungrateful, (he is ungrateful only for the loss of his ownself). Certainly my Lord is Rich (Free of all needs), Bountiful.  

 

The Ifrits are in a class of infernal Jinn noted for their strength and cunning. An ifrit is an enormous winged creature of fire, either male or female, who lives underground and frequents ruins. Ifrits live in a society structured along ancient Arab tribal lines, complete with kings, tribes, and clans. They generally marry one another, but they can also marry humans.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ifrit

2 Dimensional Creatures

mirror-scene

Positions without a Point. Lines that can’t think of an original Line. Opposite Landers. They exist to antagonize me. They have not positive existence. With-out me they are nothing. They attempt to warp and distort my reflection in an attempt to characterize me falsely to myself. I don’t care how I am perceived in the Carnival Mirror of public opinion. They are 2 dimensional creatures that dwell in the shadows casting shade on Real Human beings. They have Length and Width but no Depth. I am a 4 dimensional creature. I have depth is spades. I move like water through fingers that can’t grasp me. I am a Philosopher King without a Throne or a Kingdom, surrounded by empty Reflections and Shallow Echoes.

The Tyger (poem) Hauntingly Beautiful

Image

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

When the stars threw down their spears
And water’d heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

William Blake

Infernal Machine (poem)

Image

From the Lingayat of Shivastus Solomonicus

The Abyss Hath stared back into me.  Like Oedipus I want to pluck my eyes from my skull, never to see again.  I have seen inside this infernal machine, I understand its diabolical machinations.  I know its design, its function, its purpose.

The Cross that I bare, The burden of understanding, The guilt of this Forbidden Knowledge.  Knowing is a crime, comprehending the insanity, I cannot tell the cogs and if I did they couldn’t understand and wouldn’t believe me.  The scope is too grand, the unmasking of the Architect whose hidden hand contrived this Master Plan.

The madness of the Human Condition is infuriating, to know the future and not be able to affect it, to change it.  To see the conclusion and be impotent to avoid it.  To undo the error of the beginning.  The nature of this Juggernaut itself must change.  Every sprocket, every gear, transformed, every function perfected, in order for the beast to transcend.  Behemoth to Revelation, Abomination to perfection, a Herculean task to be sure…

It is unlawful to bring light into this world and I am the most wanted criminal.  A world hostile to reason, deaf to logic, blind to wisdom, and incapable of understanding.  Whore ship these false idols of Ego, Money, and a Life of ease devoid of substance, clean on the outside but polluted and putrid on the inside.

GHOST TOWN (poem)

Image

Phony, fake, facetious, fulsome, facades,

two-faced, insincere, sarcastic, cynical.

This humiliating redundant insult called life,

the long, tedious, denigrating anal rape of reason,

the cheerful prostitution of the intellect.

This is a living death, nothing to be a part of,

nothing to live for, nothing to die for.

We are all allowed to be just barely alive,

you can have a little stuff so that THEY 

can threaten to take it away if you don’t behave.

I am the most wanted criminal

the Thought Police want me dead,

because I am alive.

Why do we still consider it a virtue to crap forth life?

When the world is this over populated?

Feed all of the starving children today,

and their will be a million more tomorrow.

Perseveration of crazy people,

rewarding failure,

punishing success…

Solemn Solomon

Image

SOLEMN SHIVAH SOLOMONAs conscious of himself as Salome is naked.
As disillusioned as John the Baptist beheaded.
As awe-inspiring as Isis Revealed.
As serious as Osiris, dismembered.

As grave as death on a Winter night.
As undisturbed as a lake, frozen,
As peaceful as a sunny summer day,
As wise as the Richest Man in Babylon Robbed of every shekel…
Shalom.

originally written after my birthday in 2012.  Strange but true, since the age of 12 I was praying for all of the Wisdom of Solomon…
