perforations

why does a vortex need to be found
in a physically
solid
place, like a root cellar
caves
walls?
the vortex can be within
a mentally
liquid lucid
place, like your thought
dream
inner eye
blinkbrainBLINK

what if ‘vortex’
does not describe it
a PUNCTURE
oubliette
BLACK HOLE entombed and bound
obligated to opium by inducing the ostrogoth out
IMPRISONMENT
the origin of whatever evil
deserving of evil eternity

ONE’S SELF-PERFORATIONS
contain all those spirits and souls
not unlike one’s own
and within each of those souls
their own perforations

soon you are filled
with all those open spaces
of all of
those left-out
dots
punctured from those perforations

what do you do
now
that the black turned to blank?
