Dragon Man: The Mescaline Making of Gills

posted by on October 1 at 13:48 PM


Sunday, 9/28, 3:10 AM: A lone male soul from Hoquiam jacked on mescaline grasped onto the Neumos dumpster like it was a lifeline. His name was Dragon Man and he stared at the ground as if he were peering from a shaky ledge into the depths of the Grand Canyon. He was wearing sunglasses and was crying. After making sure he didnít need to go to the hospital, I asked if I could interview him. He said OK and the dictation began.

As has been reported, Decibel Fest brought out minds and ears to experience and experiment. Like all large concerts and festivals, there are those that over do the experimentation. Mescaline, however, is not something to be overdone. Mescaline, or 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine, is a naturally occurring psychedelic alkaloid of the phenethylamine class. Itís a different kind of natural:

What are you on?
Dragon Man: Mescaline, the gill maker.

Why gills?
Cause Iím underwater and can breathe.

Why are you crying?
I miss my dog.

Who did you see tonight?
Carl Craig.

How did it go?
The puffer fish struck. Craig fought back. The aquarium was the amphitheatre with dragons doing chariot races. The dragons had gills too. I got dispatched.

What about Craig pulls you in?
The ocean strobe fuzz of his under-wang.

Did you get dispatched to this dumpster? Is that why youíre holding onto it?
Yes. You must think youíre pretty smart, all time traveled. But I say fuck it. This is the crux, the center pit fall of the molecular world. If I let go, you die. Your gills would carve themselves with razors.

Thank you. Would you like some water?

Whatís your dogís name?

Whatís an under-wang?
Beefy has an under-study.

Thank you.

The water I offered him was from the future.
