Sleep W/Rites

Four nights ride at me like knightless horses.

Some of us may be dead.

Do not overreact, we shall (re)enliven to you, the dead.

And, if you feel restless,

Then stand.

And, if it lingers, walk.

But, you must (not) forget your breath.

The Stain of that tree;

the mark of that unknown paw.


The tug of leash.

Does it follow?

Machen to Helen.

Machen was guide. Weigh Station.

Chhinnamasta calls me fall at her feet.

With my love.

To feed her, so she may feed the mystæ.

A precious ore mine.

A veritable land grave possessed

by the fool hanging by one foot.

On a needle & thread.

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
