POETRY | James Broughton : Shaman Psalm

an excerpt from Shaman Psalm
-James Broughton

Arouse a new era
Disarm the Cutthroats
Sever the loggerheads
Offset the history
of torment and curse
Man is the species
endangered by man
Quick while there's time
Abandon your rivalries
or mourn
Deflate pugnacity
Magnify friendliness
Off with your mask
Off with your face
Dump the false guides
who travel the warpaths
Uncover your loving
Discover surrender
Rise in your essence to
the tender occasion
Unwrap your radiance
and brighten your crew
Value one another
or fall
Come forth unabashed
Come out unbuttoned
Bury belligerence
Resurrect frolic
Only through the body can
you clasp the divine
Only through the body can
you dance with god
In every man's hand
the gift of compassion
In every man's hand
the beloved connection
Trust one another
or drown
Banish animosity
Summon endearment
you are kindred to
each one you greet
each one you deal with
Hold nothing back
Hold nothing in
Romp and commingle
