Circle ........ Word

Inspired by 10 days of solitude spent listening to William Burroughs recordings, paging through his books, and ingesting LSD.

Circle ..... Word

in the beginning lie the echoes of the world before, reverberating through space.
a long slow shudder through this night of time.
fragments appear on the dustbanks of nothing, at first as shadows, and then gaining in
substance and name.
these kairos reflecting its separated self, photon charades in this game of naming.
and surface of vacuity into our dream of division; this tired taste of heavy numbers and sweet ideas.
should this become, should this be coming, out through the word, then wavefront flight of energy’s dance
flames forth the way into the dark realms of complexity within the unity of knowingless nothing.
the people around me light up into a spinning cube of rhythmic sentence, the word is…

the ........ .............
................................ ... . . ..
...
.
WORD. ..............is..... ........ ... ..

is the word.......... to set this world on fire, by virtue of its portent for reaction?
this word is set on fire by virtue of the world, in this portent of reaction.
and in its glow we spit shapes and colours from our mouths into the gentle soil
of nature’s last addiction.
this word becomes world, swallows all into the shapes of becoming, and we are free,
to speak a word, and free indeed to tell the truth
but whats to tell when all syllables are equal,
and all vowels adjoined,
in this bittersweet glossolalia of the senses, in chemical communion with the light reflected off
the twin pillars of nothing and no thing
in this ravage of mind in the shadow of the senseless senseworld of this and that and up and down,
in this circle.
without a centre.
in the beginning, the world shakes, and the word is spoken..........
this circle has no centre.

That sounds pretty intense. Did you become a new person in those 10 days?

Greetings David,

What a wonderful question

Initially my intention was to design a ritual around a single LSD session, with the intent of identifying, disrupting, and replacing those behavioural and thought patterns that give rise to apathy and jealousy (particularly the former) in me. But, as a result of Varicella (Chicken Pox), I found myself with 2 weeks of solitude (living on my own as a relative newcomer to a foreign country) and so decided on working my ritual around 10 days rather than 2.

Anyway, to answer your question, as a result of the session I now have to imagine what it feels like to be jealous, and on those exceptionally rare occasions when I do not have to rely on imagination, I can remain safely detached from the emotion and maintain clarity of thought. As for the apathy, although the improvement is distinct there have been follow-up sessions, and I still find myself battling the ‘finer details.’               

And to clarify – due to the factor of tolerance, LSD was only ingested on the first and seventh day. This particular experiment occurred 3.5 years ago.

… the experiment continues…

what's coming through is alive, what's holding up is a mirror... totally void of hate, and killing me just the same... coming over like a storm again now considerately.
