Track Name: I Am
I am
the minstrel of
eternal love
and will play
the song of happiness

when my soul
hears music
and changes to softness
break open
the wine jar's seal

I am in love
with the temple of fire
because I was born
as the prophet
Khalili Abraham

I am in love
with soul and
wisdom
I am the enemy
of false images

spring is arriving
it is high time
for action
the sun and Aries
to get together

my blood is boiling
my heart is on fire
winter snow
is melting away
from my body

someone's love
is knocking me out
and pulling me
after itself
very forcefully

though I am
in this
hell fire
I'm filled with
honey and nectar
Track Name: Chickpea
A chickpea leaps almost over the rim of the pot
where it is being boiled.

'Why are you doing this to me?'

The cook knocks him down with the ladle.

'Don't you try to jump out.
You think I'm torturing you.
I'm giving you flavour,
so you can mix with spice and rice
and be the vitality of a human being.

Remember when you drank rain in the garden.
That was for this'

First grace. Sexual pleasure,
then a boiling new life begins.

Eventually the chickpea
with say to the cook,
'Boil me some more.
Hit me with the skimming spoon.
I can't do this by myself.

I'm life an elephant that dreams of gardens
in Hindustan and doesn't pay attention
to his driver. You're my cook, my driver,
my way into existence. I love your cooking.'

'Once was like you
fresh from the ground. In time I boiled,
and boiled in body, two fierce boilings.

My animal should, grew powerful.
Controlled it with practice,
and boiled and boiled some more,
once beyond that.
