i'm very pleased to launch this new section of deep cleveland junkmail oracle, an exercise in mystic poetry that i call water*fire*light. mystic poetry explores a place where the known embraces the unknown. it is the art of ecstatic expression, a spontaneous spiritual overflow that stands in direct contrast to work limited by the parameters of a specific dogma or designed to promote any set of sectarian beliefs. my goal is to inspire a whole new generation of rumi's & hafiz's, wandering through life drunk on poetry & aflame with the spirit of the indefinable IS. -- markk
