I roam the fire petting petals, panting
inside; marvels at sanity in planting
philosophies; treacherous cattle, inner
disguise, the quintessence is existence;
fueled beliefs, inauthentic beliefs, some
have lived with rust; by an example to
live in this space of androids, certain traits
mean altered realities; honest for true,
functionality is derivative,
a lack of understanding becomes
more roses, begonias, carnations.
either struggling wishes, or stronger
inclinations, I divest you as you
devoid me; drastic rotation, unpaved
intelligence, it registers, none the best.
movie details in there, they play guitar,
a young boy sits at invisibility;
charm in mind, anxiety charisma,
galvanized made demented.
love was chaste, dealing with fiction,
everything society desires: a
porcelain trait, rain accounted for good,
promises I believe in.
I would tarry there, losing skies, if to
unearth the forbidden jungle.
seems troubling to unthread pain, hand
painting terror; immortal cries, terrific
talent, existence interrogates its
charms; lucid, demanding, foggy, clear,
all existence, contradiction; munificent
alms, atop greater disgusts, insomuch
as, both hands negotiate shame; needing
requirements, if to sky-surf, better,
if to remain with favor.
