hello, amygdala

Hello, Amygdala. Do you see out of my tiny cut-out windows that strange and foreign man across the table? He is speaking, his lips are glistening and gnashing furiously into the shape of words, and when the occasional violent sound is called for, the tip of a viper tongue spittles out from between the gouged-out insides of the mouth and spits effluent into the air. When he is not shovelling food into his mouth he is excavating these words – all the way from Sakhalin that smoke-puffing incarceration from the other side of alimentary land. Suddenly i realise that he is hollow, and his actions transform – his mouth engorges in aggressive ripples and cradles slowly the contents of his stomach as they are brought out, dilated, under the light. The intestines are a trouble to unfold, but the vapid negroid bones fold obediently under the lap of a bloody, clumpy mass and now the whole system is herculean, pumping machinery – whistling with angry air socketed from one end of Person to the other, and still his hands march smoothly on, impaling himself furiously onto spoons and spoons of risotto, cream sauce whisked into the gale and ejaculated like albino mice just seconds after – the whole thing a sick diorama, clockwork.

Excuse me – I am pregnant with cherubs and wish to vomit them out into the world.

[blind drawing experiment, done to randomly chosen words from The Devil’s Dictionary; Ambrose Bierce ]

  1. Academy, n. A modern school where football is taught.
  2. Cat, n. A soft, indestructible automaton provided by nature to be kicked when things go wrong in the domestic circle.
  3. Cabbage, n. A familiar kitchen-garden vegetable about as large and wise as a man’s head.
  4. Circus, n. A place where horses, ponies and elephants are permitted to see men and women and children acting the fool.
  5. Envelope, n. The coffin of a document; the scabbard of a bill; the husk of a remittance; the bed-gown of a love-letter.
  6. Ink, n. A villainous compound…chiefly used to facilitate the infection of idiocy and promote intellectual crime. The properties of ink are peculiar and contradictory: it may be used to make reputations and unmake them; to blacken them and to make them white.
  7. Abdomen, n. The temple of the god Stomach, in whose worship, with
    sacrificial rights, all true men engage. From women this ancient
    faith commands but a stammering assent. They sometimes minister at
    the altar in a half-hearted and ineffective way, but true reverence
    for the one deity that men really adore they know not. If woman had a
    free hand in the world’s marketing the race would become
    graminivorous.
  8. Abridge, v.t. To shorten.
    When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for
    people to abridge their king, a decent respect for the opinions of
    mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel
    them to the separation.  Oliver Cromwell
