Aliens With Gass, The Vatican, & Moi

Over the weekend I got to be a guest on the Aliens With Gass radio show (which I’ve written about in the past for Phoenix New Times). Hosts Kevin Gassman and Heidi Gadd had me on to talk about the Vatican Observatory in Safford. We also digressed on other topics: the effects of aliens on religion, the potential non-existence of intelligent life throughout the rest of the universe, and other heady stuff.

The Girl in Brion Gysin’s Dress

Here’s an old poem I found in one of my notebooks from back in the day (2011, to be exact). It’s a bit on the nose, but something about it still resonates with me…

The Girl in Brion Gysin’s Dress

She’s a dream machine
sculpted
in flesh,
with open windows

to her soul
scattered
across her
body.

She stands in place,
ready
to spin
visions.

The way she
dances
paints new worlds beneath my
eyelids.

All she needs is
light,
a single lightbulb suspended into her
center –

and in my
hands,
a bulb and
chain.
