Creation in an Enclosure

Look at them.
Return to the page.
Ignore the others.

Do they think you're mentally unstable (worryingly psychotic)? They shouldn't. They suffer for their art. Why are they respected if others are feared, shunned? Personal bitterness? No. Bitterness has no place here. Gazing provides happiness. It will suffice.

Look around.
Dart the eyes.
Smile again.

Like Any Other

"I'm just about ready to turn this into a movie"

As he dances he spouts theatrics
A jab follows verse
Tongues lash like arms.

You owe it to me.

Should we...

She is a presence, and will be felt
While we pack the past away.

"I had to go see about a girl"

She's still so self-involved.
What changes?

Memory fades of what I used to be
I'll grow old.
Who were we pretending to see?

Listen. Learn. Dance. Forget.

Oh so dizzy, dizzy
Until it goes away.
Again we find
That what we thought
Was further from dismay.

This is no time to be self-less
Choose your order, point.
Come between it and they
Feel the lingering joint.

Behave in a way that nobody
Expects nor ever fears
Grant a wish so that only
It is he who really hears.

Yesterday or never
Pretend that we first met
Don't tell me, don't tell me
It hasn't happened yet.

My hope is quietly drowning
The pool a joker made
Beneath feet of silver shadow
And light of ghostly shade.

Loathing Toward the Delta

You came to my senses
Bewildering and stylish.
The perfect example of
Gendered flattery.

Stop it, come on.
Your suspicion is
Sadly misplaced.

Hold back the crying
A neck that's too good
For jewels.
Exceptions are made
in our dying
The destruction of
Guilty fools.

Hear them sing.
