biting the vampire

magically potent nine tails
quantum being, from another dimension
formulaic mythical genealogy
spirits of the trees and the rivers
in the immediate modern future
an entire world up there, at the top of the earth
history, culture, and geography
an epic age
angel alien god

creative reflections of who you really are
surviving the wreckage of history
make the rest of history come true
byproducts of a quest for immortality
on a ship to an uncertain future
created from the death of a god
The Long Road of Prehistory
smoke resting on the air; hazy room
driving a buggy with no tires on it

Prometheus and Loki; heights, depths
counterfactuals vs. predestination
put a Question to the Answer
clamping down, holding on
disciples of the anti-hero legend
feel like you’re brave or something
I said goodbye
can’t be the hero
something in actuality

the feel of the air, in summer
a blend of Hawaii and India
the one who lost
to be your devoted friend
when we were close
the relationship ends
see in pieces
the first gasp of the modern world
can’t be earnest

who won and who lost
told what it’s not, not what it is
lost to a shadowy prehistory
extinguishing the shout across history

a clockwork heart

You’re nobody to your god
something that hurts
A gap in the barrier maze
Boomers: The Zombie Generation
angel haven
wear the horns
why the past is winnable
Play the road alive
noscope jumpshot

why the past is valuable
nade the tree
a well in Manchuria
torus manifold “angel”
a divine loser
the Wrath and the Blood
a bucket of swine
loser TV
if the world is ending, for you, let it end

Split the Blood of an “Angel”
invoke a fallen cryptid’s name
call down the army of “heaven”
where there are rivers, there are valleys
hollow words, hollow ideology, hollow faith
stand for anything and everything – until finally nothing
it is an empty gourd – a clanging cymbal
Behind the Veil; the Holy of Holies
where there are deserts, there are mountains

A replica of the Temple, in “Heaven”
The half-angel’s sacrifice
Insta-shy
The Blood of a higher species
Pocky hero
Band-Aid warriors
AI zoo
The Last Ziggurat
the ark of genes

your world ends when you let it
unknowable Minos; the fires of Troy
preserve our genes
children of the anti-hero angel
