howl

be my Howl as in Miyazaki,
be my Howl as in Ginsberg.

& i’m with you when yr hair turns black,
& i’m with you in Rockland:

i’ll take the blue door to the secret garden,
where you scream in a straitjacket that yr losing the game of the actual pingpong of the abyss;
i’ll sit & make hats by the lake,
while yr burning yr money & listening to the Terror through the wall;
i’ll dust yr fireplace & ruin all yr lotions,
& stand before you speechless & intelligent & shaking with shame;
you will flood the room with that grey ooze that consumes you,
while you are not safe i am not safe
& now yr really in the total animal soup of time.

be my Howl as in Miyazaki,
my Howl as in Ginsberg –
we are dragging metal detectors through the sand
hoping to find the way the world ends,
because each bang & each whimper seems less & less true,
forever spiralling on arduous repeat,
like the vinyl Whiteley died to.

i’m with you when you fly into the void,
peppered in feathers & drooling
i am the best minds of my generation destroying themselves
who open antique stores & think they’re growing old & cry –

i’m with you in Rockland i’m with you in the Wastelands
& under this full moon we make the most foolish pacts
& in the light of day we sink into hypnagogic uncertainty;
we are hurtling through the unfortunate sprint that is the nadir to the zenith
we tumble & frontflip & handstand & all things that are not quite just running,

we are
our own unwilling nexus
we are
both as rare as architeuthis
i’m with you in Rockland i’m with you in the Wastelands,
i’m with you in Rockland in the Wastelands in Rockland
