the aetiology of mankind

the aetiology of mankind


the sickness language

translates us from bodies

to a diseased dream


just a spot of



conventional signs like

poems are indexical

glyphs of tomorrow

unwritten or cryptically


an open coffin

funeral for




reborn as a memory

and a whore


(poetic use of semantics is a castrated cat fucking, he still sort of does it but there are no kittens losing loaded mittens or Mitsein)


(or time


“Being itself”

the strife is

not within this

not “His”)


One thought on “the aetiology of mankind
