Cortexual essays, poetry and cerebral musings for your pre-frontal amusement


This man is driven to draw
a magnet string leads him inspired
with hands never given to stall
surrendered to apophenia; in lucid limbo, hyper-wired,

what’s the point?

words are like swords – without S’s or points
repurposed for prose, and smooth rhythmic joints

The (Dude) Mandala

01 hand-mandala
The mandala is system, a symbol, and a universe in itself of various profundity. Etymologically it means “a magic circle,” yet mandalas existed before words and without description.

how can we tell?
All exist quite intimate, entangled without end.
