Obsession

Mesmerized, I wake from a floating dream
inside the Seven Manifestations.
I make coffee, My cigarette breaks its spine
in spittoon shaped ashtray.
Frosty ghosts fingers, wickless, arm length, milk white wax candles
on the living dissection table.
Farther away: rootless planets like a web-weaving spider.
The Known suggests from the Unknown…, forces…
Severed snake head calls for fragmentary legends
beyond this worldly hell,
the barely perceptible touch becomes a crippling grip,
their messages are increasingly threatening:
non-human hand written verses…
Eventually the shapeless turns to shape,
the watery horse-eyed lifeless begins to move…
