Leviticus - Part 3

Another Leviticus original, this time found in the West Village. The poem reads,

The only thing we have time for here is power
penetrating ebbs and flows
Volcanic power determins (sic) destinies dreams...

I always thought that Leviticus was the name of the guy that wrote the book of the Old Testament, but in fact it comes from the Old Latin title, "Liber Leviticus" (Book of Leviticus). This is an adjective suggesting the complete title "the Levitical book" or the "book pertaining to the Levites".
