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

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

For You My Lamb

What would you do
if violence were forced upon you?
bloodstained sands
steel wolves ravaging lambs
compel you to flee this land

An aegean expanse
the danger it yields
leaves you breathless
whitecaps meet a forlorn hand
two lights vanish in a stillborn sea
