A Preview of 'Rise Like Leviathan & Rejoice!' by Christopher Brownsword (Oneiros Books)


NEGATIVE TERMINAL

                             Data flux serving
hive to meld between more

Reticulate bondage from light in

the embryo by

jolted to ground:

neural mechanisms

render simulation in womb,
an impetus for terminus

of spliced
          permutation

where amniotic ordinance trawls re-established
under sky. Module
as fractal empty, the terror of the sun
observed through egress; synapse dilates
output - locus imprinted. The interior plane
combusts: the primal apogee sutured.

Cold nebulae to the flesh-lines;

nerves awaken,
eyes scan

substrate differentiating slide.

NEXUS



Let seed from brittle hands
grip delta

as yield torn ever into spring, her flesh
calls beyond terrain: the sky

emptied into our throats

like water
like celestial dew

 like the new
crescent moon: passion.

UNDER ERASURE

Her desolation by surge loss prism or was
ecstasy deplete whirls as reinforce should debris

husk. Flesh excites
to ancient              stimulant over

how reflect were darkening so held. I pour contact,
ebb together where at none; season exhausted by touch, her thighs

now sap ever annihilated in host.
The north wind

dilates in circuit to repel through lymph, far blackened
with sun approaching zenith across level sea. Kneeling in the

fragrant grass, I feed upon root and earth.
Ingress kept

low: burnt from tryst, settles to vast current. Had blossom
fall yet seethe only.

Reluctant to path always vestige smoke if jaws
were not separate at hill beyond
obelisk. Graze far                               sky

under erasure: softly
the hot rain                     moistens light.

I phalynx simulacrum
tethered by
moss.                              Winter gathers

surplus where terminal. Access sent ripple as door

pools flesh begin narrow into sunless
temple, consuming

lotus tree.
