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


where foul winds carry

airborne germs of fear – – –


life’s heedless couplings

& the rain continue,




weeding out the fungus

the liver golems shuffle

in couples through the corn – – –



returns to focus:

it is a grave
