The Pathaphysics of Our everyday Fears by Lazlo Aranyi (Frater Amzon)

Heist, Poetry


                     From armour to barbour
                            or from the operating room to the ice room.
       The order comes and we’re deprived of oxygen.
              The Mengeleesque nurse selects the patients
                     under the spell of labor market demands:
       “Stay put” or “It’s a cripple!
              And he’s drunk! Come on, Mr. Body-Tray! “

The hospital has become an execution site
                     Where the master of the ultimate things knows how
              to squeeze tens and hundreds of millions out of death…

       William Burke hangs on the gallows. Undisturbed.
(his denture has submerged in water.)
       His pal, Hare
is now being lynched by the mob for his vile plea bargain,
              but Dr. Knox is not even on trial… 
                            Our waking Sun is a goggled, broken-purple eye.
                            A toad with a slit belly lurks at us
from the foul pork jelly of our Celestial Order.

Steaming bowels: greasy Medusa snake-clusters
                on the clothesline of the zodiac,
       and Saturn staggers backwards in Scorpio… “He is Psermes. Human in form, but better resembles
       a goat; a curved tiller hanging from a rope.
       He rules over Cappadocia, Galatia, Phrygia.” “God be with you!” (soon comes the “be against you”…)
“I’m the skinner from the mink yard… I was sent for you…”
