Alex Staring into Water Staring

Inside a head
soaking with heat,
the dim lights go to sleep.
Shadows bulge;
undercover lover
sailing swells into isles
on the forehead of the one
who's blind and nulls the seep.

Someone flick it fast,
the risingson lobotomy,
blue jellyfish transparency
until all those thoughts are numb.

Unhinged. Minus the sulfur.
Can't hear you. What's up?
This morning I had a dream that
Morning dreamed that
dreams detoxx'd backstreet sorcery
would you like to repair source.exe?

are you certain
it's still...
draw the curtains,
mare conflagration comes in twos,
dos for locos impaling themselves
in the distant firegold viddy.
