My contribution's "Six Ron Silliman Visions."
Here's Vision 3
Ron Silliman’s making love. To his wife. His beautiful and dark wife. And Silliman’s so white they look, entwined, like a zebra. A zebra leaning down to drink from a sunset lake. Flamingos—— billions and billions of pinkness flashing——drag up over a monkey’s teeth. Silliman’s biting his wife. And they’re fucking, not making love. Sheets stained with blood. Bones and teeth. Ron Silliman and his wife are smoking.
