Jungle Warfare

Recorded on 15 May 2010

Jungle Warfare

Explosions of multibrittled meanings intermingled
with the mute roar of phantomgushes;
Am losing contact with the well-defined edges
spinning lovetouch to the moat;

Unsane I am Unsane of brain

From the mote of naked flame writhing exploding suns
and interrupted signals bleep from the walls of gushing lotus;

Unsane I am Unsame of brain
Unsane omnipresence I remain

You splurge from the verges into manibuddhad rhumb lines
on the central vibrating cord tinselled into one long
uninterrupted orgasm of sound and colour and;
“Death don’t have no mercy in this land”
in merciless acid blues and purples;

Unsane I am Unsame of brain
Unsane omnipresence I remain
No self

Feedback from the fibres and spinning inroads
on an absurd carpetscape inhabited with
maneating flowers canniballing my somethingscape

Unsane I am Unsame of brain
Unsane omnipresence I remain
No self yet the abode for other selves

In the warped perspectives of this room
with the walls and the squeaking furniture;
And there is laughing beyond these walls of matter;

Unsane I am Unsame of brain
Unsane omnipresence I remain
No self yet the abode for other selves
One omniself from allself
