What are you doing?
green hell belched up a black jaguar
left it panting on my pillow
star sparks on midnight velvet
primordial panthera onca
eyed and plush pelted.
me from my dreams
dropped me whole into a maw of ivory fanged poppy jasper
rose in opaline orchids fetid with fungi and fire ants
joints loose and fluid,
as sinuous obsidian smoke
lashing, whiskers rattling.
stop to strop my claws on the vanity,
of sugar pine scattering the forest floor
Rainforest killer! You caused my conjuring
thought I was slumbering through your lumbering
my snoring became roaring,
startled a cyclone of rainbow birds
burst out of my windows and spiraled into the cityscape
Adios Corporate Consumosaurs!
emailed your memento mori
you sent your programmers to picnic
sacred saffron deer browse digital kudzu
turquoise dragonflies glitter in tinsel
tandem with toothy saws
the jungle juice runs down your chins
you drink it fresh in your mourning cups
Burn the jungle and burn me
lap the red river at your virtual threshold.
have gone beyond the grid.
thrash in brackish swamps
expected a robot apocalypse reeking with radiation and caustic chemicals
But you will experience Death by life
Which is worse?
wriggling in your wet ware
botflies burrowing in your bloodstream?
mutating in your mother board or
jungle fever voodoo in your vitals
may kill your livelihood and the other- - you.
up mosquito meals
cannot hack your way out of the living jungle.
seek terror in crackers and cubicles
outside your window
emerald ivy strangles the stone you are standing on.
slime sleeps between the digital steps
have moved your machines into the jungle
the jungle has moved into your machines.
the branch I am sitting on only brings us jugular to jaw.
cacophony of monsoon monkeys swings in your mezzanines
port in a storm
tarantulas at the terminals
scales of anacondas coil coaxial cables
macaws and lemon frogs call you to stay online
sinister spider wraps unwary prey in its silvery web
Crashing the canopies has condemned you
By order of the
Law of the jungle
stings and bites, amber poisons and pollens
Eat or be-- beetle's breakfast
didn't you leave what needed to believed?
are now doomed to be a joy ridden jungle junky
in the green underworld
all the passwords are taken by the dearly departed
even a hackfest of geeksters can retrieve you here
a wild werejaguar
by seven Matses shamans
icaros in the Amazon Basin.
Shadow makers, I invite you to the
Reality of the jaguaress
dance the path between whistles and bellbirds
pantera negra paces in fierce forest heat
a tropical paradise
Ethnocide! Herbicide! Suicide!
Whose side are you on?
no turning back
the jungle in you knows everything you know, and also, everything you do
vivo la selva!
selva vive en nosotros!
ebony curare claw has pierced your soul
left it quivering on the altar
the hungry eye of the jaguar moon
