Paranoid, but Alive

a natural state of perception


that possible

negative truth

of our universe

behind its mask

lies that face of decay


always ready

paranoia declares

the end result

of all eventuality

is death

intimacy with death

the essence of creative thinking

fuels our passion

tending not to be life-affirming

rather, a

negative potential

taking to its logical conclusion

life in its abundance

that’s the secret

to life eternal


that’s how we do it
