Head Film Noir #3

“Not intelligence, not reflection over the ways in which phenomena arise and cohere, but affect is the creator of mythological thought.”

— Wilhelm Wundt, Elemente der Völkerpsychologie (1913)

mental abberations resume

control: a sense of back time,

of earth vapors & the clouds

###

grinding darkness passed

over Babylonian rooftops,

settling on chrome & neon

###

& neurotic flotsam – rising

on the surface of my mind

& I’m falling prey again to

###

adenoidal attention set in,

unbearable intimations

& the usual array of angst –

###

of self-loathing, confusion,

of invasion of brain space

& the shallow nitrous sky

###

casting shadows about –

mind-sound like music,

a dry hypnotic dirge sung

###

in the distance – I seek

escape so for a minute

I phase into the fugue:




odd corners, warped angles –

 

a twilit tunnel & a dale of graves –

 

a sphere where humans don’t belong

 

& my tongue & hands feel foreign somehow
