and make it snappy mr alligator

Subliminal electricity
Hums and volts.
Magic crackles in
Magnesium-Silver lines;
The plugged-in, shockhair,
Cyber-wired
Headset Carnivore sits
Illuminated by the
Light of the V.D.U screen;
Where Late-night,
Laboratory-blue Neon
Striplights cast Rorschach
Shadows and Passion plays
Against the walls.
Sweating beneath the
Whirr and slice of the
Fans whirring steel blades.
Buzzing wild-eyed
On hits of late night
Caffeine,
Blissful needle balm
And Stoned,
Sour-fruit, sloe gin syrup.
Tap tap typing out
Pigrims’ dreams in
Bilious ink,
Meeting God in the
Shadow of
Oblivion and dreams,
In the square root of
Lost and found;
With blueprint plans,
Probability graphs of
Creation math and
Eden maps.





Running the silent
Late-night,
Drugged rooftops
Of the mind,
Leaving
Tarot-pack
Calling cards and
Ransom notes.
Staring down the
Barrel of life
Thru a hunter’s
Rifle sight.
Renegade angel
Nemesis
Clicks and reloads.
Guided by divine voices,
Carries a Bag full of
Bullets and
Sinners’ names.








Sentinel sleeps,
Gagged and tied in devil knots.
