In CephalochromoScope*

“In art, revolution inevitably results in classicism.”

— Ossip Mandelstam






however now 

all of an instant

there’s a host of

ancient souls

floating across

my mindspace

& sharing my vision in


I remember

the dialogue

I remember

singing this feeling

& flowing smoothly

like a shadow though

I have a weak stomach

for the bugs flying around


my breathing seems

strange & ragged

















*Philip K. Dick, A Scanner Darkly (1977), p. 26
