A Brainwave

All any drug amounts to is tweaking the incoming data. You have to be incredibly self-centered or pathetic to be satisfied with simply tweaking the incoming data.

a brainwave

like a syncopated systole/ a brainwave threatening my own poor

concept of self/ the pain of having such a radiant parasite mind

within my own/ grows sharper/ a mental decoy/ & I’m swamped

with remorse & those vague harmonics of unease / now a frozen

glimpse of the past/ & frames of old film/ & your modular smile

in the small hours of the apocalypse: grey mirror, black lipstick,

shallow emotion – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
