there will be no rulers and there will be no rule.
All will uphold the virtues of their choosing.
Neither light nor dark will be banished
for they form the night sky and the stars –
the womb of Old Mother Universe.
Eating, drinking, fasting, will all be allowed
for all states of the cauldron must be embraced –
empty and full and there will be no divisions between
the ones who drink and the ones who stir as
this was the root of the original disaster.
There will be no good and there will be no bad.
We will exist in a world before sin existed.
The before that 365 plants come from and art
and who we bring to life with our songs.
There will be room for men and women and all between.
It will be accepted that we all are monsters.
The monstrous will be raised on high with the dragons,
spiralling, spiralling down, descending into
darkness, sleepily drunk on mead.
We will be visible and invisible.
No-one will see that we wear our habits
like invisible cloaks as we got about our daily lives.
No-one will see the Monastery of Annwn because
it lies beyond doors and walls and no-one
will read the forbidden books
in our personal libraries
because they lie unwritten
on the dark shelves of our souls.
No-one will be able to read our motivations.
I ask is this monastery meant to be built?
If I build a monastery will they come?
Or will it always be a rule of one?
