Le paradis n'est pas artificiel …

notebook draft: Arizona

If you're curious, I am writing. I'm just in a horror-themed period -- self-aware dread-realism, more conceptual than imagistic for now. Want some anyway? Here's a gorey chunk for those with baited breath. That's a [sic] joke. Get it? ... oh, never mind.

The great sadness of Orion bellyflopping
westward over and over, resembling Sisyphus
but seemingly more willless, just spilling over and
without guile, transforming equally fullwise into something
refined, absolute -- resembling again both Jacqueline Saburido
(immolation survivor) and Thich Quang Duc (immolation suicide):
both burning and burnt down to something ultimate, both (living and remembered) crude-cut ghostlike; both whittled by will as wax by wick.

(for Malachi Ritscher)
