Alien Orphan #6

“The gap that separates beauty from ugliness is the very gap that separates reality from the Real: what constitutes reality is the minimum of idealization the subject needs in order to sustain the horror of the Real.”

— Slavoj Žižek









Pickle my I in tears that tickle,

& then ball me! – 

A thousand fight, no business.

My I is friends, say Doll Mother.

My I can control.

My I be more incidental to life.

Sing the days, say Doll Mother,

payments will do & do for once.

Plastic shots do hold.

Won’t anyone feel me radiate?
