LOTUS FERVOR

 

Some psychedelics
Unfortunately require
A Civilised touché
At times of untimely
Intimidation press
Pronoia & paranoia
Blazed lips of death
Voices echo etched
In their own reflection
Too little and you’re
Stuck in swarming
Aristotelian static
Statuesque Crowds
Immortals without
Identity or even
Mosques of masks
Hijabs fade off faces
Knives slide silently
Into the side of
White demons
And by the time
Alexander has one
Adversus Visigoths
Too much machismo
Conquered crushed
Catatonic crusades
Straight lines turn
India he dies and
The Eastern silk
Devours itself
All roads lead
To Helios
Roses burn
Silver glints
Slices smoke
Into projections
Some call history

 

 

KALĀM KOSMOLOGICA

 

Shadows of stars
Tearing themselves

 

Flittering over this
Wasteland Cantos

 

de chœur Enfant
Fountain heads

 

terrible splendour
Millions of millennia

 

Darts down into
Skyscrapers

 

Steels its art
And artificial

 

Insanity back
Laughing as

 

It powders
Stardust

 

Onto our chic
Slits into vains

 

Nirvanic Nihilio
Jaded Genesis
