in minuscule handwriting

trepanation in the land of bilk & money

who drilled a hole in the front of his own skull to increase brain blood volume?
& allow the full heartbeat to express itself inside the cranial cavity a column of fire
midnight ’til dawn rain fire after the defeat of los aztecas the spanish forbade
pagan idolatry ceremonial mushrooms montezuma ii saw the stars of mamalhuatzil

simply to ward off cold ward off heat the touch of flies/mosquitoes/wind/sun/reptiles
deserts at one time inhabited by thousands of ascetics hermits anchorites
solitary confinement inside a cell adopting lifestyle of a beast abandoning personal hygiene
self-inflicted pain voluntary suffering hedonism that views moral sexual restraint
as either unnecessary or harmful i wrote in minuscule handwriting on a continuous roll
paper i rolled tightly placed in my cell wall to hide a fifth person in and out
of psychiatric hospitals due to unspecified disorders a new generation born
of the legacy of the cinema of transgression : underground cinema transgressive art
found footage controversial matter surgical footage psychodramatic performances
physical interventions into the material film stock i retire to the eighth-floor cafe : the terraces the lines of comfy leather couches the explosive ordinance disposal market bomb dispersal units robots & specialized tools

“On my daily walk, I steal Meyer lemons from my neighbors’ yard,
a small pomegranate. Instead of eating them,

I observe their casual rot on the kitchen counter,
this theatre of good things turning into something else.”

— Aria Aber / “Waiting for Your Call”
