The Author as a Working Scribe...

"I place my fingers
            upon these keys
            typing 2,000 dreams per minute
            and naked of spirit
            dance forth my cosmic vortex
            upon this crucifix called language..."
                --Aberjhani, from Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black
