Beyond the Senses
what sounds do bats, with their velvet fur and eyeteeth gleaming
in the night, hear among sorceries and pitches of insect screams?
what is it like to see through multiple lenses of the spider, like heated neon paintings in a virtual maze of wire-framed pixilated web sites?
how does the snake bridge the senses of taste and smell, periodically testing the air with its tweezers tongue and poking his fork into his next meal?
and of the shark we do not know the extent to which he feels the waves of prey ducking in every direction to avoid the layered depths of triangled, one-way teeth.
Your life was meant for mine
My life was meant for you
You died so I could live
My will to you I give
Everything is yours
And when I die is mine
Everything that's mine
I dedicate to you
In need I call on you
I'm there when you call too
To me you gave your all
I'll give my all to you
Your word is bittersweet
My crown before your feet
Crying holy, holy, holy
Until the day we meet
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
