Untitled (for Andre Breton)


Nostalgic sentiments and new wave nocturnes

intersecting in a normal chaos of life

an hourglass of neglected affinities

idols of saturated phenomena

night of filth, night of flowers

the aporia of revelation




Magic Bullet (for Tristan Tzara)


Smell of death

smell of life of embrace

a medicine of moments

semiquavers and sundial conductors

of the postspectacle

deposits of legitimacy left behind

sortilege of the divine decree

words in blood like flowers





Horror.Philosophy.Sex (to C.M. Cioran)


Anathemas and admirations

in the graveyard of definitions

citizen of wonderlust

soul of the blasted pine

metahaven overture

caught in a clinch

formations of the angelic abstract

unto poor image thresholds

landscape over zero 








Cascading fragment

of an inhabited solitude

waxing gibbous

in the iridescent shuttle

praying for the shadows firsthand

terraforming this anvil of distinction

a forbidding tangle of brambles

like a shower of superstitions


an echo of our gestures







Illiterate heart

in a fulcrum of ceremonial oath

sentient cathedrals

of post everything steam drills

emollient time of ascent

master of contingency

a wave of light illuminating the hedge
