On The Hippocampus

Therapy isn’t curing somebody of something; it is a means of helping a person explore himself, his life, his consciousness (…) Every human being must have a point at which he stands against the culture, where he says, “This is me and the world be damned!”.

— Dr Rollo May

my nightmares burn

with dissolute flame

& the liver golems feed

on hot depleted waste – – –


breathing in

I phase-shift

into the void

p1070572.jpg

where foul winds carry

airborne germs of fear – – –

 

life’s heedless couplings

& the rain continue,

blindly

p1070594_2.jpg

 

weeding out the fungus

the liver golems shuffle

in couples through the corn – – –

 

space-time

returns to focus:

it is a grave
