The Price of Death

Stoned from the middle eye

centered in a suspension of mercury

and sifting through dune darkness

the combustion as medium

hits a point of placid aquiescence

in the tornadic antigravity of

motionless space.

Under bathwater rain,

you hold back the river

with a bolt from the blue.

More than the altruistic levity of a wistful recline

we change and are changed

waiting for a resurfacing that cuts through the cyclone.

The burial used to commemorate them,




and into,



and cosmically undisturbed.



The Land of Laws in a Lawless Land

Hope costs nothing,

is, that true?

Wait and see for free will to be a myopic illusion.


Within the severity of the palette

slick reflections imbue self-deception

into the ambiguous arrangements of space and color,

presenting objects through

the presence of their absence.


The land of laws in a Lawless Land

inundates the Woman in the Dunes

to flood, grow, trade,

part of,


for the influence to,

the abstracted continuation of her single thought.


The wave of effacing narcissus slowly

blooms and pervades the early fog

asking, to be healed is a very mysterious thing.


when you ran across the room

and burned everything I loved and hated to the ground

I got up and filled my heart with water

and had it slowly turn to ice

so more flames would just turn it back to water

but the water lifted into air

and it was weightless

like I never had a heart at all
