Content

Whatever feels Phildickian about life can be inserted in this form:

What’s Real?
Is it me?
Orthogonal selfhood, God
spinning stories.

¡Santo!***
Holy beam —
Pinkness rattles sacred glands;
Godhead repeats.

Shepherd —
Electric
Sheep munch on a timespace chunk;
Always ersatz.

Kipple
Pedazos****
Old bits & pieces of lived life;
Holy debris.
