a demonic simpleton would merely be a simple demon

in such the manic gyre crushes
it cannot flee
drags in distends brutally

tarantella of magnetic flow
implodes into impotent dust

             a wanton nova
becomes an absurd incubus

        the apocalypse hunts fastens and corrupts

manic bacilli seated in roots
  and peer lesions
           burn    hectic and    batter
        into incensed elegance
                 but too often
          sanitised by lithium

          hectic force
          within scabrous lesions
combine to aerial autonomy
        birth of captive web in menacing dream
