Litany

I've hung my body out to dry.
  And it was not enough.
I've invaded my cellular automata with suicide.
  And it was not enough.
I've sexed my skin into reassembled ribbons.
  And it was not enough.
I've broken my language down into brutality.
  And it was not enough.
I've pushed my name against the jail-house bars.
  And it was not enough.
I've blasphemed against every word of the Torah.
  And it was not enough.
I've distributed my genome among the criminal class.
  And it was not enough.
I've transformed open source into an open sore.
  And it was not enough.
I've murdered my talent and starved the rest of me.
  And it was not enough.
I've sold out absolutely nothing to no one.
  And it was not enough.
I've turned my selves into holocausts.
  And it was not enough.
  And it was not enough.
It was never enough and never sufficient.
It was always enough and always sufficient.
It overflowed and drowned.
It never dried and was always perfect.
It was always cleansed and never dirty.
It was always healed.
It was always heaven and kind.
It was always safe and enough.
