Self-Isolation

Outblowing lexicon, a phenomenal connect-athlon
Fighting for facetime, speaking through screens
Pixelated smiles in low-rise jeans

Self-Isolation—the new meditation, egoless online ID and high-rise screams
A concrete jungle; we’re monkeys with machines

Methuselah's Crimes

Saturated hippocampus
Fail-states rampant
Memory banks
Bursting at the seams
Overclocked
Synthwave
Set to sine

Acute trauma built-in
Guilty conscience
Reveling
High crimes
Organised
He’s evil’s
Synonym

Relived
A high-def
Twisted grin
Obtuse
The price
Of living
Sin

Lovebirds

New love so saccharine, cherubs watch from on high
Blushing as we writhe in angelic ecstasy
Your voice will suffice
Drown out a judgemental dirge
Doves & crows sing jealously
Two hearts heave—a frantic merge
One half of the same soul
Separate wings make us whole

Breathless

Panic stations
The conductor’s missing
And this train’s gone off the rails
Pupils in dilation
No light, just chemical
Exhale

Lost to temptation
Scrambled information
Inhale

A Bullet punctures the basion
Sanity’s cost of living
Mental hangnail
Torn off
Breathing fails

Anastasis

We gaze beyond the universe’s precipice
and the Terror plucks out our eyes
to utter its name invites a feast of tongues
the Word corrupted, it sleeps no longer
Sol rages, the Herald cries—ruin
we came from stars; now we return
nourishment for the Sun Eater’s
Anastasis
