Psychedelia

Unplugged grunge minute on TV.Electric seconds grizzling in the static stares. Manic hours at the Hawaiian harbors. "Maybe I should play the bawdy saloons in the black villages. Maybe Algerians are my true calling. Maybe morgues are my native habitat. Maybe I should stroll through Big Sur or an island" An occult moon, a spaceman tripping [...]

Surf Shop Singer

Those tender thickets of floral poetry, Printed on pulp pages, Which have something to do with your crashing feet, Something to do with the roaring beat, Are made of pebbles dressed in aquatic fauna, Echoing footsteps over dingy and hollow covers.

Peyote was bedding the wildness of the soil on the day of blooming grief, budding in every casket, in the glisten of every colored iris and butterfly wings breaking at the hold of barefooted angels. All this and the [...]

Terror Starts in Otiose

The elephant of frost on the windows, honey looking out at the ice. Sitting down by the window, heart flooded with fire, honey looking out at the vastness of ice. Anna Livia Plurabelle. Gustav Klimt. Here comes everybody, waiting for midnight at the Hollywood Bowl. Cheerio, holidaymaker Keep a summer down with yellow vividness fizzing [...]
