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. Consequently, this collaboration took weeks but I must say I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I think it reads more or less as one voice and that’s quite a feat considering Charlie and I are such different writers. Thank you so much, Charlie for pushing me to do this and having faith in me when I didn’t think I could handle your genius mind – you rock, my friend! ❤
I kissed a ghost –
its lips take me to a sensual disillusionment,
brought on by a textured touch papier-mâché –
exacerbated by a beached whale
who whispers weird tales in my ear
as I am sipping on my beer.
Concescastors summoned Babylon.
The subgenius behemoth
unshackles all the deluded minds
that hit the asylum walls.
Bleeding thoughts! Said the salamander surgeons –
Who discovered a vile tantric;
slithering around the world
& against the mint galactic blues.
A broken compass needle swinging back and forth –
sanity catatonic, insanity seducing north.
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
