Hallucination Is Everywhere by Josef Krebs

Hallucination is everywhere

Hallucination is everywhere
The brain is a Nosferatu shut in a coffin
The New Yorker spills theories into your morning expulsions
Like a rabid giraffe
Beautiful yet dangerous
In unexpected ways
A system undermining a system
An unexpected momentary illumination
Callous as a truck hauling debris
Stabbing at necessity and routine
In a ruinous habit that gives respite
From base opportunity and self serving
Advancement
Day by mottled day
