Transcript of Be Serpentine The Hyde
without further ado, D5 Chapbook II
We are not allowed to leave the compound, so class field trips tend to be localized; for instance, this week we visited the bathroom. As each stall offers homage to a different deity, the students were segregated and left to autonomous explorations of the toilet, which is also a well, so with string spun from fine-knotted hair and hooks built from braces each team went sewer fishing while Annabelle and I read letters from the home office written backwards in the mirror. The walls decorated with dyes squeezed from hand soap and urinal blocks and flags flown from toilet paper, soon enough each stall became its own nation, and the flourishing of under-divider com-merce taught truer lessons than any of the gibberish textbooks the temporary government sends us in dump trucks every other Monday. I felt a sense of purpose swelling as the miniature cretins learned to haggle and barter, and I told Annabelle we should never return to the learning center, we should spend the remainder of the semester in our bathroom classroom, but she was pleasur-ing herself with the hand dryer and paid me no mind.

how do you wash your hands before Genocide?in a sense. the same way you wash them before god.in the rain. as you ride the wings of insanity. as you fold the wings of insanity. are you not as religious?painting dreams. is your song not as filled with hopedespair and the grasping of general confusion. asyou confront the future. this is what i hear. but to find only part one of a song. but in a songthat is everything.

..a hologram aching with adoration and a vague hope of recovering fifteen billion sweaty ballads from the colour of opium. one could blast off into theoretical nights, or freely choose to squander the new Eve on remixed whorls of metaphor. the scarab's initial relation to superior fingers, it was all a harbinger of the sweet, unresolved fifth that augmented gravity, the codes revealed by your bare shoulder minus the lattice of smiling numbers. I ran through the flickering conspiracy, baritone impulses splashing at my exposed knees and thighs. the logic of evisceration drank prophecies from the fluourescent green foliage, a satellite was given enough answers to question. on the cusp of a digitized sunrise with blank eyes and a frightening message from the automatic, I mourned what was ironic in you, the equations that drifted without purpose yet were capable of dividing the bluest sky into the syntax of my upturned palms.

I fell down this hole in a spiral of mewling cats.A cacophony of stars, blinking, blind and brilliantThat spun a druid curse of vapour trail cloud.Violence dressed in flowers.My marvels unhinged as one, a desire of kitchen utensils that passed the hair lip stair trip flash and crash of metal objects. Of tin and bronze, chrome and steel. Boxes of charnel ruin that scooped debris on the hoof. The passengers of lost fell upon the glade day as fresh parts in a bad leg hovel.Scattergun and furious they toast the limp horn crust with saliva from a mule. Its television eye switch from frequency patter can to the high minded ethos of advert.For on and on galvanise the frontiers of lose chain that assemble like rich tramps in a poor mans Harrods, that fester full broth and crème fresh, tampon satin snivelling groin lust. Her hard hat wears a thin cord to strangle the cries of the amorous and mad. Insane laughter like the beseech-ing of Grace Poole whose madness silver smith picked the locked sanity of the barman general whilst his foot sore foot soldiers grieved their aching web feet like the scrotum of malachite. A fistful of time floating down a mist of memory while tied to the harbinger of puddle rack and guilt. CJ DUFFY

it's just this perpetual whining in the ears, a common drone that appears to exude from that cabi-net in which the head of the last landlord is stored. despite my insatiable cleaning habits, the stain proceeded to seep and discolor the lace hanky that took me years to complete, being woven from the garments of mine enemies that befell sudden deaths. the persnickety stain threatens the pile of furbelow embellished petticoats that i carefully crafted from the skins of discarded chil-dren. (it's hard to convince grieving women to hand over remnants ) but there it is, shining in the sunlight and cradling that pesky box. this sound of ochre afternoons soiled now and that obfus-cating damn noise that will not stop despite my valiant efforts at self treppaning.

scarred trunks waver, glottal. soft spoors, dew-starred, unfurl in the still. the stolid barrows fal-low silent. the breathsroilacross the fibrous stalks of fungus-furred moors. that were once of oldgrowthscar left of old; the trunks gasp hardstop. chitinfeet drum soft belts of tracks; the web-vomit up—silk grappling hooks to drawthe hornshells lapse to soil. the cornhusk poppet drools her saccharine sap upon the scars
thunder rushes insubstantial tides againstthe great lead sheet earth sleeps
beneath the stolid barrows fallow silent. the cornhusk scrapes the sap. wolf cubs and old crows circle closed with magnetic amber eyes, drawing the bloodsap back to earth. they accrue, metas-tasize, rippling fur and bloodsquirm
the soil’s peristaltic shudder looses mewls and ululations from starvelings on the prowl. the pop-pet draws her silk across the dully shining scar. the lesions shiver loose and the tree begins to fledge. now the scar begins again to feel the breaths JOHN MOORE WILLIAMS
Delivered into an heightened state / a mantra repeating / naked trees in mud / opaque sky / skinny limbed / starved / pale / ribs rush under skin / corrugated / broken now / a buttock apron / anus / he lies animated / her blade slides under the skin / makes a cut as though passing through taut plastic / things shiny and wet spill out / I separate from myself and feel that sensation in my head / not quite right / she is naked and daubed / and painted in mud / I imagine a chair for her to sit in / it is wooden / bare / worn and hard / planted in the mud of the field / bad thunk lifts off my head / I lay it in her lap / feel her fur on the back of my neck / looking up at myself sightless // my heightened self collapses in the HMV / I follow a lost opportunity and balk at a chance / slum-bering into ennui / into petite historical routs and a retrieval of instances / puking into an ill-formed beard / carrying a broken bike I’d fucked into the curb / where rats run and her hair is scraped back / powerful and tarnished / conjuring spittle in her mouth / witch baptism / I have name and wash in shiny and wet things / and reattach to something of me / seeing stars twinkle along the membranes of a hollowed torso / echoes / a voice limbers within the container / and from behind / and from her mouth / summons me to lay down within / to curl up / to be sewn into my old form… D.ROOD
there are dirty stains upon the sheetsand dead flowers on the floor
there is a king upon a godly throneand lions in his den
there are dragonflys with wide wing spansand horses that are lame
there are men and some are equalwhile others just pretend
there is a song that froze upon the lipsof an aged irish maid
but she wrote down all the words for meand they are with me till this day.i haven't seen the marbled stairs
nor ate the fruits of godsbut i am just another man
and fuck all those who say i am notso be wary all you little snots
when you consort with meremember who the hell i am
and curse me silently. CJ DUFFY
I asked her why she thought it was going to happen again, and she said if something happens once it's a miracle, but if it happens twice it's an everyday occurrence, and since she didn't be-lieve in miracles it *had* to happen again. That's what the Enlightenment gets you. DB

Although the words just just get more truculent above the broken flagstone, the monkey grinders funeral must march on until this life becomes a tilt, a lugubrious slide into the art of seeing noth-ing, doing nothing, injustice ticking away, until someday, you are horribly content.
discharge came about after cocaine jesus had visited a site called Vespertyn, the creation of the girl child genius who was once known as transience. together with doriandra smith (another di-vinity), cocaine jesus set about perverting this concept to a dark vision of his and doriandra's creation. the dark angels of discharge were born. after awhile others came (and went). discharge finished and was replaced by discharge 2 and then discharge 3. and the story continues...

A solemn nod of the head to all of you listed above and anyone i may have horribly omitted due to space and time restrictions. A dip into the inkwell of lust about what our collective madness will continue to unfold. Yes, indeed.
