Booster Shot Tanka
Man shot by booster—
Fever dreams / sleep of reason—

A self-styled auto-da-fé.
“Anything a writer says about their work is outside the work, a stranger to it. It’s a different language. It’s almost an enemy of the work. Whatever transformational transmission of weird beauty and consolation the work might possess might be utterly destroyed by the writer talking about it on the side.”
— Joy Williams / Lit Hub interview
