I hight Don Quixote, I live on peyote

I hight Don Quixote, I live on peyote,

marijuana, morphine and cocaine,

I never know sadness but only a madness

that burns at the heart and the brain.

I see each charwoman, ecstatic, inhuman,

angelic, demonic, divine.

Each wagon a dragon, each beer mug a flagon

that brims with ambrosial wine.

John Whiteside “Jack” Parsons, from Oriflamme, Feb 21, 1943
