I thought

I thought
the web
was a type of haram
and some of us were haram-keepers
not to be confused
with harem-keepers

The wikipedia;

"Haram means (is Arabic for) "inviolate zones", an important aspect of urban planning in Muslim civilization.They were sanctuaries, or places where contending parties could settle disputes peacefully. Towns were usually built near a river which provided drinking and domestic water (upstream) and carried away waste and sewage (downstream, usually underground).

I thought
the web
was a type of ghetto
and anonymous was it's
golem
not to be confused with gollum

Biederman:

"Golem; a mythical symbolic figure of a robot-like being consisting of matter artificially brought to life and capable of threatening its creator. Whereas Frankenstein's monster (in Mary Shelley's novel of 1818) is supposedly put toget her from parts of human bodies, the golem of Jewish myth is the product of a legendary act of creation through language. 'Golem' literally means something like 'unformed material', like Adam before his soul was breathed into him. [The legendary golem which inspired fear in the heart of his master] can be understood as a warning against the unthinking use of magical powers, which become too much for us, making us lose controll."

I almost thought
the web might be
a church archive
where births and deaths are kept
but I could not reconcile myself with the deaths
so paused the analogy there.

The web is the massive, mind boggling infinity. A yard where everything and nothing exist. The dirty, the defunct , the fake. Blogs are its human beats

We don’t need to either control or kill golem, let him get lost in the forest and by the time he comes back he will be transformed.

the trouble
with loosing
anything
in the forest
or in any metaphorical jungle
is that the self cannot then stop composing
terrible poetry...

I thought
the web was a cathedral
and we could
get married there
but god
laughed
and broke the spell

So I gave back
my tin earrings
to Sheba
and the confectioners foil
to Pleione
that she might shine
brighter

A fish is told
that it doesn't need a bicycle

So .... she decides to try it
and later is heard singing
"I want to ride my bicycle "

God broke his spell
But really he was just tired
of doing all the work for us

People got angry
stopped going to the cathedral
But when sheba shined her tin earings on earth.
a new form of magic happened.

Suddenly everybody was wearing new shining earing.
They all knew that they didn't need those earings.
But they wore them anyway.

and jingled prettily, as they marched about beating their tin drums

Native Americans (well, the Cherokees, anyway) have a saying that one day the world will be covered with a spider web.

They think the internet is that spider web.
