Watching the Detectives

"...'truths' which send men frantic and blast their lives." --from Robert W. Chambers' short story collection, 'The King in Yellow' (Louis Castaigne from‘Repairer of Reputations')

King Yellow, Belly of the Beast, your magma chamber's sulfur-feast will blot all eyes. Let ash illumine day.(1,2) Twin meta-stars surrender light against Carcosa's crowning night. What length the shadow casts, no sun can say. All masks deceive. Some circle near. One attened, psychotropic sphere takes heart. The wolf detects its partnered prey. Resumption lurks at spiral's end. No fates advance, nor acts amend this monstrous, inalterable play. --by Norman Ball
