Dog Star Night

“A life which is amorphous, plastic and crystalline. What am I talking about? Copula Maritalis? Or from alcohol to alkahest. Can you tell me?…”

— Malcolm Lowry, Under the Volcano

fireflies

 green ghosts

 & cold fusion:

the shadows I absorb

 ignite the limbic heat

of dream state serendipity:

flying bugs on the flowers

 hot faces near the light

 & memories of water –

 undoing my past

 the pleasure

 never

ends
