Snapchat Chinatown 

Mists skirt up aghast 

Mongolian lights slit

Over scattered orange skies

Streets scream אוי געוואַלד

Tamilese Tempests

Scrapers iron Sinks

Black facades inbe——

Tween Twain Feigned

Sincerity over Euro Police

Sirens Flares Fades To Static

Dawn Rise Elderly Green Tea

윷노리Brut Ciroc sh

Opium & Mao Tze-Tounges Halls Στύξ 

Rings Grim zn.t n.t ḥˁb 巫蠱————

Dolores Hades 

Trumpets cigs sax smoke

Notes dart dissonant orders

Haiku harakiris kamikaze

Daoist Lesbos

Sundance Sabbath Nocturnes

Chinatown Crystallizes Quixotic 

Acid reigns on Venetian Horus

Isis Aegean orange lanterns

Skies light up Byzantium 

——                            Silence                ——

Yang does not say Helios 

To any pathological Greco

Lunar glimmers glance off 

Glints of alliterative solace

Romanov London winds

Archetypes chimes 

Charms Orwell

Under Grecian

Guernica Rawls

Slaughter house

Ist mural Nozick

Anarchy states

Utopia mirages——

Forms un-form until 

Avila il duomo——

Il duce touché

If words mattered 

At das point in time

Wie banned them

Already the serpent

Has gazed supremely 

Spouting constricting 

Disinterested synthetic 

Ally engulfing worlds 

Without amen what

Contemporal calls 

True passion plays

Shrouds of Turin

Tyrannical Acts 

As One voice

Cubano Opiates

Strings of violet lights hang——

Dancing Cross Cigar

Necklaced chiseled fauxfur——
