Psychotic Episode

Mental illness is not funny. — Philip K. Dick

and to grow

in the grain

lull me

asleep

of brilliant flies

pour burning love

into the devil’s

paradise

p1070167_2_2.jpg

that by starlight

he may sing and shiver

like leaves

on a tree

p1070263_2_2.jpg

smooth vision

muted silence

by the wave, by the wave

your coolness on my cheeks:

p1070143_2.jpg

the beads

of your love

in a slumbering

chestnut

p1070262_2_2.jpg

hemmed in

by beasts

from violent forests:

where the stars are sleeping

p1070214.jpg

lying in

their long veils

on the calm black water

embroidered with black ashes

p1070205_2.jpg

memories

but endlessly

rising, soaring

mount in my soul

p1070258_3.jpg

I cared not

I was hurled off the hurricane

of litter

and resentment

p1070195_2.jpg

pale-eyed

I realize

in antique plays

the scented twilight

of souls

devoured

by vermin
