On the Ward #2

 

This whole creation is essentially subjective, and the dream is the theater where the dreamer is at once scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.

— Carl Gustav Jung, General Aspects of Dream Psychology (1928)

& the Mad Poet cried:

 

I’m the gift and the giver

of painful remorse!

I’m the reek of unholy!

I’m the rider’s pale horse!

 

Yet I have known Love!

O traitorous Love!

Yet I’ve known the Truth! 

O treacherous Truth!

 

Sing a prayer!

Invoke! what was lost 

& forbidden,

hexed, blasted, accursed,

confounded & hidden!

 

Love, o Love! 

O traitorous Love! 

Truth, o Truth!

O treacherous Truth!

 

(cut to/ two Ukrainian orderlies slowly closing in

with assorted atypical neuroleptics)
