ALTER SUBLIME

Alter Sublime

Between the shadow
and the reflection between
(between) the shadow
and our eyes
lies.
the virtual image.
Once opened a crack
and the stars came pouring through.

Hovering over the febrile narcissus
of your after-image
the Word surfaces in cruel cisterns.
Our memory seizures expended
in the last ripples of
the virtual shadow.
As if perspective
cutting along the lines of focus
were progressively less & less adroit
in the articulation of creation.
A bloodless coup
in the military junta of the Vampire. It.

It is this miraculous fire
which he has made for himself.
A glowing mantle
the device of ice-crystals
to inscribe the pool's clear fascination.
Do you know him?
The image falls crashing to his feet
again and again.
Each time a world reduced
to smooth glowing shards.
(pause, reset)
Divine anæsthesia
correct everlasting.

It is the, it is
like a hole
that runs through everything.
Seen
it is altered.
Grasped
it is broken.
Strange herald,
predator of the adoration,
it is the mind
eating itself.


The column unspeakable.


Turn your radio to the microwave bands and listen there.
