memories, 2018

When I was trapped in that dream that I had had before.
An anomalous entity enters the room, bending light around and within it...
stands and the foot of the bed...
Violent pulsing attacks the brain.
Down alleyways small deformed creatures crawl and writhe over one another at its borders...
tiny stones and detritus vibrate, grow long spindly legs and begin to walk around...
on the rooftops and in the sky formless indescribable shapes appear.
My finger tips are shrieking hummingbirds
And we are walking on snakes.

Man's a mad animal
I'm a thousand years old and in my time
I've helped commit a million murders
The earth is spread
The earth is spread thick
with squashed human guts
We few survivors
We few survivors
walk over a quaking bog of corpses
always under our feet
every step we take
rotted bones ashes matted hair
under our feet
broken teeth skulls split open
A mad animal
I'm a mad animal
Prisons don't help
Chains don't help
I escape
through all the walls
through all the shit and the splintered bones
You'll see it all one day
I'm not through yet
I have plans
PATIENT: Long live Napoleon and the nation
