Merger with the Shadow – Part Two

“The valleys have their imbeciles; it is from the mountains the poet and madman come.”
– Edgar Saltus

retune your eyes – ignore

limbic drive early fixation!

drunk recollections drown 

drowning forever in word  

dreaming off precious fear 


& torture my self-image &

migratory letters swerve for

bees house daily bottom tic 

dreaming first day deviation –

a blow upon my bleak house


deference a chink in my armour

in middle shiver movie time –

deft scribble pithy monolog! 

tomorrow poetry police own, 

recognize & denounce my myth
