Unlock the door only if you’re prepared
to go though…



‘Juju’ whispered the shaman.


Drums resonated

a skin taught rhythm of Eden, fire

incantations and utterances of souls

in intent  foot stomp.

Abhoa, tribal shape shifter

danced a lapsing Leopard frenzy

into catatonic schizophrenia.

His Ostrich feather cosmos smudging the smoke

of the chosen

awaiting the blessings of the spirits they invoke.


The sun fell, and the world was sleeping

when the air spirits came. Their hair like straw

malevolent mendacious eyes.

They took the chosen in shinning fleet,

and with licentious tongues

they corrupted the language of innocents.


The alien among us had left us babbling

in the tower of Babel.

Having recently attended a Pow Wow in Central Florida, I can tell you that this particular piece resides in the heart of many people.

I particularly enjoy that your style of writing commands the reader toward self-reflection and responsibility.

Great write and a pleasure to become acquainted with such a talented writer!

Exo-Genesis is an ecological link which unites us with the planet, the psychedelic experience longing to get back to paleolithic states. New shamanism movements integrate a world-view of traditional shamanism and link to the current environmental problems, goes like this,

The Airs you have poisoned
By your cars, your smoke,
your factories,
And again the Spiral's turning
Poison Air and poison Water
Trees start dying in the forest
Poison Air, poison your
Poison your

I can feel the drumbeat and leopard-spirit stored in the forest of trees, Paul.

Dear Paul,

Another of your exceptional writes, filled with strange and obscure visions, one can almost see the tribal shape shifter dancing and stomping around a fire, and hear the sound of resonating drums... superb imagery Paul.

Warmest hugs and love my dear friend.
do take care

"corrupting the language of innocents" is an interesting concept. Think the malevolent mendacious eyes is/are so fitting as I always think the spirit of Babel is the spirit of division. Not only does this divisiveness split our tongues, but it also stops our ears. Like this exegesis on exo-genesis, Paul. TY Kate xx

Love the graphic !

A true example of poetic excellence abounds in "Exo-Genesis", and flows through its imgery of symbolical and real depicting of a surreal hypnotic transe of intersouls communication.

I have enjoyed the reading of "Exo-Genesis".

I salute You, Poet!

Long healthy creative life.

Paul this is a bolt of lightning! Exceptional write, that provokes much thought! Hope there are more parts;-)...

Exo: outside, external to Genesis. Those Shamans aren't just manifesting schizophrenia, they are down right high as a kite on pot or psilocybin. Which can open the door to senses you only thought were awake.
