Determined Mists of Holy Insurrection

 

Coded for striving by laws of inner direction, or else a stoic fire yearning for life, this sleeping through the labyrinthine shadows, through the dawns of torment, through the snarling syntax of indigenous fires, comes by way of a devotion to a “holy insurrection” of poetic effusions, either implied or oblique; the poet as seer, and/or philosopher, radiates juxtaposed allusions and tart cynicism, intoxicated by visits from translunar beings, with the hope the poetry transcends its material, even in spite of a plethora of bad scribblings by bearing the unknown costs of our infertile mortality and imbecilic dosages of life;  also, found throughout the archetypes of fire, water and light, any strange poetry gets synthesized in the “poetisphere”, with many of the images coming from ancestral root fires, from ancient dreams, perhaps from the eloquent stammers of melancholy gods; this occurs because the development of the imagination is done through a synthesis of contradictions, that is, through a freezing fire found in one’s individual metaphoric alchemy …
