Fusiform Gyrus, Cento for Vesta


Resembling a Cock Vesta, image by Irene Koronas   



Cento for Vesta

(remix of Keats’ Endymion, book IV, lines 650-720; Miller's Tropic of Cancer pp. 9-11, Shakespeare's Sonnets, Verse 23 and Graves’ Caligula)   


Mossy phantasm 
blow-worn
volcano light 
enough to see
let my looks be 
then 
the eloquence 
the monstrous 
swell of 
pure elysium
her 
gnarled rotten 
whole 
anything 
resembling a cock
Vesta  
in perfect seizure
un-torn
only gods are
privileged to
behold one another
wormiest wonder
with fiddle-string
torture

eye
pleasure. 



—Fusiform Gyrus
