Backlit

For external use only-
enter the dragon and the spore.
The mold.
Allergen and Alopecia.
enter the giant ceramic logger and the ballad of the
blown fuse.

This is the outtage of power

interim

buds begin to flower and birds breed where
apple blossoms shower on 
the living pretense of
Astroturf.

Sweating now, the 
father of the flame
the serf draws his kerchief from his shirt and
wipes his brow
raises his axe and slaughters the 
pregnant sow.

The Universal Man by 
Ted Davinci. or was it
Leonardo Kazinsky?
