This could be due to chronic mydriasis.
"Pavane" by Keith Roberts; W.H.Auden, Sarah Kane, George Oppen, Isaac Asimov ("The Mule" is one of the great characters of all time, and so is arcadia darell), J.G. Ballard.
some more poets:
A.C. Swinburne, Charles Reznikoff, John Dryden,
Byron, Shelley, Isaac Rosenberg.

Movies: Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil" and the couple of minutes I watched of "In a Lonely Place" on youtube. Anything by David Lynch.

Parentheses (for the endless elaboration of thought.)
(And finally- that thing each day that makes me smile.)
Semantics, the arts, or art, of concealment and clarity.
the eristics, and erotetics, of eroticism.
The aforementioned "keyhole effect."
