Merger with the Shadow – Part Three

“Fire is a perfect poet.”

Edgar Saltus


imm000_N0



speak: tactical monolog 

lose wait

correct the timing of lies

split the day 


& finding & reading ate

bone clocks

to own a world in prose 

become yr/own


secret world pure flesh 

& poets blow 

technique of loneliness

better parents 


first critic’s fear of life

shivering angel 

emblazoned in no time

but form

Merger with the Shadow – Part Two

“The valleys have their imbeciles; it is from the mountains the poet and madman come.”
– Edgar Saltus

retune your eyes – ignore

limbic drive early fixation!

drunk recollections drown 

drowning forever in word  

dreaming off precious fear 


& torture my self-image &

migratory letters swerve for

bees house daily bottom tic 

dreaming first day deviation –

a blow upon my bleak house


deference a chink in my armour

in middle shiver movie time –

deft scribble pithy monolog! 

tomorrow poetry police own, 

recognize & denounce my myth

Merger with the Shadow

“Beloved imagination, what I most like in you is your unsparing quality.”

– André Breton, Manifesto of Surrealism (1924)

 

imm006_N6

 

 

black pit red lite open eyes
time to punish y/r disciples:
unspeakable mysteries
of the antithetical flesh —
frantic mode rage of society


maze mind the old & open
& upon the 6th listening
u sell y/r space-time elsewhere:
dream up the shape of
the liquid flesh!


true knowledge from
a merger w/the shadow
a blow to your head –
visceral dreaming
of the knot world! 

 

 & the Mad Poet cried:

 

Read me angel & remove
the guilty knowledge of my sins –
my craven crime & desire!

Read my leehead like & wholesale!
Ourselves revise the coming time –
blood contact vision in deviant eyes!

Kleine Vollmondseele

Man sieht, was man am besten aus sich sehen kann.” 

– Carl Gustav Jung

 

P1300139_2

 

kleine vollmondseele träumt

hat den tag

versäumt

 

kleine vollmondseele wächst

hat deine träume

verhext

 

über vollmondseele lacht

wer dich träumt

in der nacht

Sechs Zeilen für Doktor Benn

 

“Im Schlafe und Traume machen wir das ganze Pensum früheren Menschentums durch.”

– Nietzsche

P1290995_3

         

         Das Messer,

                            der Krieg –

         die Drogen,

                            der Sieg –

         die Schauer,

                            die Zeit –

         gelebtes Vergessen:

         – Welt-Einsamkeit!

What Games to Play

“It is a difficult business, no doubt, to get any fun out of existence; but at least it is not impossible.”

– Aleister Crowley

P1290957

A voice floated down to me.

“Let’s decide what games to play

& how to settle arguments.”

“Come to pay me.”

“My honour.”

Something patted me on the shoulder.

“I can tell you secrets.”

Remembering the old ways,

I’d go for my own kin.

“I hate spiders.”

New feature: MyWebsite

personal_website

.

New feature on ARTDOXA:

.

MyWebsite is your personal website that allows you to present your artwork from ARTDOXA – but  without  the  community functions. ARTDOXA has always been a place that encourages you to share and discuss your art – even the weirdest things and the most vague ideas are welcome – and that’s exactly the way we want it. On a ‘normal website’, things might be different, maybe you would just show a selection of your work. Well, that’s what MyWebsite is here for now. Just select the catalogs you wish to be shown, and that’s it.  This way you do not need to maintain an extra website. Test it one month FOR FREE –  MyWebsite is ready when you are.

.

You get a website in perfectly pure and clean style – and it even works on all kinds of mobile devices. The address is yourname.artdoxa.com, but, of course, you can also just redirect from your individual web address to MyWebsite.

.

ARTDOXA has been a free service since 2007, and it will stay like that. But: Not only did we invest countless days, months and years of our lives into this precious project, but also a lot of money. So if you like MyWebsite, you can subscribe for € 7 per month.

.

This helps us to keep our platform ad-free and independent. Subscribing is very welcomed to cover  at least some  of the  server costs and development – even if you do not use MyWebsite. But who would not use something as beautiful as this?

.

All the best,
your ARTDOXA team
