William S. Burroughs‘ idea of high romance:
If I had my way we’d sleep every night all wrapped around each other like hibernating rattlesnakes.
Connection creates wreckage:
A happy hum
And choreographed symbology, life in death.

(For more on rattlesnakes, connected and otherwise, you want to read Gordon Grice’s Deadly Kingdom: The Book of Dangerous Animals. William Burroughs did. It’s probably where he got the image. )
