Hallucination Abbreviated

A pyramid of blue light ascends
from yr hands folded together
with warm mesquite branches
turning up the volume of a monsoon—

Three blocks away a dog barks
for a thousand years
in the padded walls of yr ears
, crackling the air like a serpent's tongue
flanked by purple orbs dancing in the wind...

Auras are charged by voices
in the mountains spiraling through
memory's trap doors—voices voices
voices—would you walk across the
wilting promise of yr own eyes? Enough
for the other side to greet yr reckoning
in green & silver waves?

  1. The number 3 is endowed with special, mystical significance, symbolizing mysterious union as an expression of the creative activity of the universe. It is the only number that is the sum of all preceding numbers. It may appear in a number of guises such as 9, its square, and 27, its cubed, forms. Numbers larger than 11 are often added together or multiplied to reveal hidden meanings. In the case of 333, 3+3+3=9, or 3X3X3=27 (which yields 2+7, or 9 again). The number 9 means abundance and is a sign that creative energies are working on one's behalf.

  2. Horus was the Egyptian sky god, usually depicted as a falcon. Funerary amulets were often made in the shape of the Eye of Horus, which represented the marking around the eye of a falcon, including the teardrop marking sometimes found below the eye; they were intended to protect the pharaoh in the afterlife and to ward off evil. Horus' right eye was associated with the sun god, Ra, and the left one represented the moon god Thoth, who maintained the universe. In one account, Set gouged out the left eye, but Horus was able to restore part of it and offered it to his father Osiris in an effort to resurrect him; so the eye of Horus symbolized sacrifice, healing, restoration, and protection.
