Letter to Art

Art,
Hey brother, don’t let the MAN get you down. We are all together in the cosmic-o-sensual gravity box, and will remain until the boundaries are overthrown with the light from ever graceful rosettes of pseudotime. Slipping into a nostalgic mood, several sheets of paper which had taken up residence in the old Black Hole in the kitchen avoided all the traps I set out for them the past week. But then I tried a new bait mixture of equal parts: paper clips, peanut butter and semen. And so you see them before you, watching as I gibber and dance like some diseased member of a forgotten branching of ape ancestry, jabbing again and again with my metal tipped cock substitute into the virgin flesh of the sheet. Write to me, he said, a thousand thoughts of love and brotherhood that mean more to those involved than the remote control freaks could ever experience in their waking lives. Why does corporate MALLMERICA take up so much of the Mad Doctor’s pseudotime? For it shall be that life mirrors the true political climate of the most intimate of hells. New challenges to be won out of the Alice in Wonderland adventure, I’ve done the Caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, even the Cheshire Cat. Should I become the Jabberwock? Now? Perhaps the deck of cards will be fat with me, I do not wish to be dealt any more Jokers. Fly away from Wonderland that was so hard to find but so easy to forget. Become one with the verse constant of Cosmos. I will be here waiting with open arms, to lay the blood roses of life’s heart into the merciless snow at your feet. And until then, I shall make time to kneel before the altar and sacrifice more paper in your well chosen name

Author’s Postmortem: my own analysis of my work, some folks prefer not to know, so spoilers ahead.

Here it is, the letter I’ve been looking for! Our good friend Axle Rift (Art) took off to California and got sort of stuck out there (long story and not mine to tell), and ended up in Jail. Despite my horrible track record at writing letters to family and friends, I finally put pen to paper and the above is the result. I don’t see a need to over-analyze this one, mostly it’s about me finally writing to him, my spending too much time at work, my decisions in life, and wanting him to come home. I’ll let him tell you what impact it had, I know most of it but I’d hate to put words in his mouth.

Axle Rift (Art):
wow, its like reliving that whole time over again. most of it was real uplifting and positive the way i saw it. the part with the semen and the metal tipped cock substitute were scary, but it made me think. i had never thought of a pen being a cock before. that part made me laugh. but the underlying theme and colorful use of words made up for it in the end. it helped me feel like someone, besides the number on my blue plastic wrist band. i got alot of letters during my brief 3 month stay at the hotel dago. but that one was by far my favorite. awesome prose.

and i must add calling it a letter doesn’t give it enough credit. it is pure poetry.
