"On the eve of his daughter's birth, a whirlwind flared in the darkling
haze of the North, inaugurating vestiginous insurrections against Nature.
A netherworld pageant unfolded in rapid time. Mandragora sprouted from
an unmarked grave; bees with human faces sprinkled pollen over the head
of the slumbering Sodom. The dog collapsed into a violent, unstoppable
bout of sneezing, its whole body convulsing, and died with dark blood
foaming from his snout and penis. These tarns captured the image of the
setting sun; in overwrought crepuscular arcades, cannibal scarecrows
clashed. Ghost-drums hammered in the bleak cornfields. No matter how
many times Philbin cast his dice, they turned up triple six."

``In the time it takes for one man to masturbate in his lonely bed,
a million stars burn out; a million more are born.
Rivers wend their way to sea, blades trace the curve of backbone
under white and virgin skin.
Tonight, we have no sense of crime.''
-- James Havoc, Zodiak Breath
"Daybreak hangs from East to West like a triptych of electrocuted
infants, an adumbration of the church that eats its young; Katrina bowls
her last grapefruit across the frosen lake. Moths erupt, tangling in her
shiny, treacherous hair.
Her hair of the colour Hell."
-- THE COLOUR HELL, by James Havoc
