Submission guidelines

To not be refused admission one must submit
to the first guideline.

To submit
is the first guideline. The second guideline

remembers the first temple. The second temple was not like the first
is the second guideline.  But pay no mind. And do admit. You will never gain admission by paying mind

to these guidelines. You will not have time. You will not die
for a long time and you will die

without ever knowing the first temple 
existed. But you may well have become admitted to the second temple, made famous, and you will definitely

have submitted to the guidelines. It may almost
not even have hurt, or if it did you will not have noticed

and if you did you will have forgotten
by now. Unless you are dead. In which case your remains will be

refused permission, much as the commingled bones of the christian martyrs buried in the catacombs
beneath Rome were not admitted to the above ground city of Rome, so that you will no longer be

feeling any pain, if you ever did, from the unfortunate stumble that happened

after you bumped your head upon an overhanging vine latticed
monumental arch as you entered the second temple to receive your laurels. 

They were always going to be heavy
after all.

My entire family survived a real death this afternoon. Airstrikes hit near Fun City in Sanaa, where hundreds of children including mine were playing. Shrapnels, sand and stones hit under their feet. They were almost suffocated by dust and smoke. Shock is unfathomable! #Yemen: image via Mohammed Al-Asaadi @alasaadim, 19 April 2018

 You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.: tweet via Kanye West @kanyewest, 25 April 2018

Just three days later, West checked into the UCLA medical center, suffering from exhaustion and lack of sleep, and spent a week there receiving mental health treatment. His wife, Kim Kardashian, who has made no public appearances since a robbery in Paris in October, where she was tied up and robbed of millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry, was not with him for his arrival at Trump Tower. His entourage included a videographer. Trump’s daughter Ivanka was also there.
