facial nerves — / the brain’s tentacles — / so compulsively attracted / to sensing the world / through the gnashing of teeth #MUTTERVERSE
the disturbingly large / collection of swallowed objects / is orderly kept in drawers / that swallow them too #MUTTERVERSE
Billowing uterus / arranged above the double-headed baby / — cord tethered / to a common thought balloon #MUTTERVERSE
tumors manifest / where eyes neglect / and assert a purer beauty #MUTTERVERSE
heads of the miscarried triplets / bob gently beside each other / in the jar / tiny mouths / whispering secret plans #MUTTERVERSE
The Vienna Eye Phantom / gazes / through razored sockets / still holding the ghost of a hundred / surgical practice / cow eyes #MUTTERVERSE
the surgeon’s books / are bound in human skin / to make the opening of it / more familiar, / the carnality of it / more pensive #MUTTERVERSE
on the eyelashes of corpses / death applies / a lovely black / mascara #MUTTERVERSE
vertical sections of face / nowhere to meet the eyes #MUTTERVERSE
among all the bodies and bones / in this open ossuary / it’s the empty jars / and the broken boxes / that most make you wonder #MUTTERVERSE
the wax model / cranes his head back to unveil / lymphatics of the neck / — if his eyes were open / you’d think he had gills #MUTTERVERSE
rats dangle from strings tied to their paws / to display their hollowed excavatum / like they’re clawing their way out of jars #MUTTERVERSE
in the torso study / a spine fans nerves behind its ribcage — / as archaic as a fossil — / a human trilobite #MUTTERVERSE
Human horns are the saddest. / They droop and dangle and disappoint, / lacking all the sharpened power / of demonic tumescence. #MUTTERVERSE
for those who shape deformity / and disease / in wax / the ‘normal’ part of the face / is the hardest part / to craft #MUTTERVERSE
multiple belly buttons — / suggesting simultaneous mothers #MUTTERVERSE
we forgive the dead their dignified nudity — / the mummies in their tattered rags / merely mock the foolishness of fashion #MUTTERVERSE
As Bacon said, “Some books are meant to be chewed and digested…” fb.me/KseQitsG
so many bodies / rigged up and posed in rigor. / So pliably we curl / between the cruel fingers of god and gravity. #MUTTERVERSE
while jotting delicate / black notes on bones / the scientist chuckles darkly / at the label that reads / ‘permanent’ marker #MUTTERVERSE
so many skulls / lined up like soldiers / in bone white helmets / yet one is tilted back / chin raised in abstract defiance #MUTTERVERSE
we bend at the spine / peering through glass / more fragile than bone / aware that our eyes / are the only thing dying #MUTTERVERSE
@IMJTruthsayers Lost. When I click ‘Columns’ I only see logos? If u linked these to articles tagged by author I think it’d build audience.
#DexterNotes 7.5 Dex drives a Ford “Escape”; logo is apparent when Isaak is following him and he pulls over at the Columbian bar.
On that note: a disturbing beer label but I bet it’s good stuff : beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/8…
One of the highlights of the trip: meeting @DaveThomas76 — thx for coming and glad we had a chance to chat.
#popuncanny got coffee with Dr. Hamilton at WaWa. …. the doublement has begun.
#popuncanny terminal. departure. so many euphemisms at the airport.
#popuncanny there is no ‘sky mall’ up here in the clouds.
#popuncanny ‘takeoff’ the capt says so easily, as if lifting us off the face of the earth is so natural. descent too is a scary thing.
#popuncanny at airport - i feel glad to not be flying ‘spirit air’. (do they float like ghosts?)
#popuncanny uncanny weather report on tv this morn : a ‘Frankenstorm’ is purportedly on horizon.
@jadedlens Kewpie doll heads are scary indeed. Like eggs waiting to hatch frothy pink demons made of pure tentacle. Cuddle with care!

@peterbforster Oh, THAT was the guy ordering a choke-a latte. Well then - I guess it’s Halloween. I will assume you’re all wearing masks.
Is #Halloween trending already? It’s still eleven days away. Don’t rush the Satan. He hasn’t had his coffee yet.
@HutchingsJulie You bet, Julie! Best wishes with your work on the dark side….may you return unscathed. Or, well, maybe a little scathed.
@tanyatwombly Sometimes just asking is all it takes! Good luck. And THANK YOU!
#whatIwrite: Horror — the most experimental popular genre around. It knows what you assume and it shows you alternatives. Is this the fear?
@tanyatwombly Maybe chat with your faculty/administrators/colleagues… they might have funds to set up a visit/event?
Right on @DaveThomas76! I think the Neumann visit will be a lot of fun. See you there.
Hey, who knows, perhaps I can visit your campus someday, too. @tanyatwombly !

@JaSunni_JasonVB How disappointing. Still, I’d like to see the fisherman who gutted that monster. Probably a giant cyclops from some island.
