Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

Australis


 
Australis
 
 
Wake of river, between mist-filled canyons, dense trees, leeches, roads wrought on the backs of ridges, untraced save by feet.
 
Bark and circles.
 
Black iron pagodas and low, square-founded sites, with around shimmering, yellow stalk, a true Neanderthal head, an unmanifested star:  Standing at angles to the sun on top of the hill.
 
Not an inch uncultivated, kelp, no titanic masonry dropped, bordering, and draping, filled-in oratories, dragon creepers, fjords, scarce walkers, the upper dell obliquely green, ice and grey churning.

  1. I wondered if you'd ever published any of these short works, like Australis, in a collection. I think there good enough.
    Love the chaos of Room '86.

    1. Ray, I appreciate the comment. No, I did not publish Australis until now -- some of the pieces I've posted appeared in small magazines and zines at one time, but not in a collection. Good idea though. My room of that time was pretty chaotic, at least in that shot. I see the wall had a cutting about Burroughs taped up.
