Twilight wreathes the verdant labyrinth -- Fevered dreams, allowed by friendly stars, of ardent muses green on Absinthe; are swallowed up whole by Night's great yawn. A flourishing bier of hyacinth -- Barbed seeds, nascent blossoms of a scar - Suffering flowers soothed by Nepenthe, all doomed to curl up dead with the dawn.
(A eulogy for al-Carcosa. His laughter remains)

Sometimes a glittering shell of plastic, costume rubbish keeps the burning core alive, protected, vital & invisible. Does the rubbish know? Does it matter? Maybe. But not every person really knows how to be God. Most only know to play the lackey, to swish through sewage and call it revelation. Who can evaporate all the pretenders?
