Disintegration



Memory.(pause)
illusory.
But the dream somehow combines them both in harmony.
Comedy(pause)
and tragedy.
Both beget a laugh or tears,
a mirror shattering.

Oh scarlet melody.(pause)
Opaque resiliency we keep.
A moonlit serenade,(pause)
erasing what..  we...  perceive.

Struc---tures,
breaking down.
Towering accolade.(pause)
An---swers,
leap-ing bounds.
Hang from a postulate.

All is but a dream,
wrapped in cellophane.
Walls of irony.
Thoughts that missed the train.

Emotions can't ignore
thoughts unglued by time.
A picture tries to form.
Ripples in the tide.

What  magick(pause)
isn't what we see?
Phan---tasmic.(pause)
Concrete fantasy?

A contradicting fallacy?

Sweet, sim-plicity
bitter to those who wait.
Flee-ting majesty,
like carved lines on a face.

Interpretation.
Imagination.
Encapsulation.
DIstintegration.

Immoderation.
bastardization.
canonization.
Disintegration.
