Psychic Marmalade

MARCUS SLEASE POETRY, NOMADIC SURREALISM, the green monk

The Green Monk is heavily influenced by Surrealist writers and painters who have lived or passed through Madrid in the first part of the 20th century. It is also influenced by nomadic surrealist wanderings around Europe. It has four movements:

  1. Built to Spill
  2. Psychic Marmalade
  3. The Green Monk
  4. Great Expectations

Here is an excerpt from the second movement: Psychic Marmalade. Written in Alchemia (Kazimierz, Krakow, Poland). A few days before Christmas 2016.
