“Parasite of the Sun” – Haiku VI

[Originally published as the second half of Cosmic Love.]

51—
Vocalized slumber
Dreams curling at the edges
Fade to black sickness

52—
Hinder me but once,
You’ve lost my trust – hinder me
Twice, you’ve lost my love

53—
Organic lives are
Incompatible tyrants
And depthless bloodlust

54—
Tears of angel’s bile
Unholy duet mourns my
Conception, rebirth

55—
My erratic nerves
Thrash like devils in a chest
Total neurosis

56—
Mechanical palm
Slips through essence of hours
Melts into black stars

57—
Fantastic savage
Dangles from needle fingers
Wormlike humanoids

58—
Column of scarlet
Dissolves into blind sandstorm
Engulfs the planet

59—
The fog does not rise
Unending bridge of corpses
In purgatory

60—
All hail corrupt cells
Brain parasite of the sun
Greed of cerebrum
