Outback Trek: Hebel Dreams

I dreamt upon
the flight of night
riding the backseat
of a V8 Ford Pilot
whilst a Corporate Shaman
was stelthily installing
into my right arm
a mechanism
powered by lithium
that would recharge
my iPhone
and disseminate information

Outback Trek: Hebel Town Dreamtime

Roaming the Never Never

A voice through the Dreamtime

of nondescript sandwich meat

Upon a Dragon’s Breath
(and the Persistence of Grace)

The suffocation
the slow seduction
Life and death
riding the trail
of a dragon’s breath
