to Louis Armand
They'll return to the place where they were spawned-
baptism of fire, of bodies performing the law,
this curious ordinary crescendo extreme
faded beauteous last installment nothing can capture
talking code star chalice
I am your worst fear, I am your best fantasy
here & elsewhere
desolation honor respite, draconian New York
dark father live intercity pellarin
the machine of Eden glaze of cathexis circus of fear
stop making sense immortality inc.
symbolic weight of this axis of meaning
two mirrors in infinite regress
born at the end of a missive caprice
