Concescastors Slurped Off Decayed Sounds (A Collaboration with Nathalie Purpleanais and I)

The awesome Charlie asked me ages ago for a collaboration and I was frankly too scared to take him up on it because his style of writing is *totally* different from mine. But, Charlie insisted and I agreed to at least try…the idea was that there should be no conscious thought process involved in this: if I got Charlie’s lines and nothing came to me in response, I would just put them aside and go back to them later.

Concescastors summoned Babylon.
The subgenius behemoth
unshackles all the deluded minds

Decopygmenes slurp evidence off a decayed dictionary.
The words plea for help!
The words laugh soundly!

I’m sitting underneath the lemon tree
where Aristophanes contemplates
and studies the honey bees
unconsciously touching the crease in his sleeve.

They beg to slip in the shoe void Amsterdam.
Was the mirror not stretching integrity
