"Alpha Mnemonic"
Word Image without the image no word Language a disease communicable by mouth Alpha from brain Omega passed on her tongue to yours Ancient codex genetically kissed dispersed with music intonation gutteral romantic cerebral never rehearsed language a virus formed Mnemonic from where exactly, Within? ad lib ad lucem ad libitum from somewhere other birthed codex ancient Alpha alien genetic hive driven we are observed writhing in our smalls amphibian brained we are still loud embryos clashing and clinging unjust we are just learning exotic movements within our blue pitri plate circular in motion we are agitated not calm, chasing long versed pre-recorded, re-rehearsed tales a breath blown over us language divides us in love and belief a disease we are we think we speak we spread our languages communicable by eyes that envision dreams of others within we are not knowing with clandestined futures and over-ripe mouths to succour we simulate ad lib ad lucem ad libitum sensual cold science hot and feverish we lie in bed with irreverent romantic fate Omega ohm resistant high voltage across the conductor Always equal Metaphors of unity become the Sequel Blissfully ignorant Ripe Red currents juiced up and Blue buries itself warm palmed on a soft beating breast Ideology and Romance arrive late Memory lost in the Alpha Mnemonic Stuck in the warm and sticky we grow cold (LadyLabyrinth / 2020)
