Weathering the Chaos: A Poem

weathering-the-chaos

Wicked thoughts

confess

their transgressions today.

 

Unkempt scars

sneak up

like beasts of prey.

 

Entombed idols

rest silent

in evanescent eulogies.

 

Unfailing co-conspirators

lose their footing

between infinitesimal crannies.

 

The absinthial ale

of rancid acrimony

snaking down my veins.

 

Bittersweet relics

of mixtapes and ticket stubs

locked up in chains.

 

I lie awake,

Mouth agape,

Eyes fluttering open and shut.

I have a choice to make,

Hearts to break,

But in the chaos of it all

the echoes of embellished wind chimes

might save me after all.
