Caged Fight


size of a fist,

heart beats your chest–

battering ribs

pummeling blood

and

pounding your ears

–bruising you

from the inside out.

Some stone,

some gold knuckled,

some without gloves,

it’s too obstinate

to concede. . . .

it’s only when

it decides to skip it

. . .

altogether

. .

are you

knocked out

.

of the ring

 

prompt: one way

No. 1

I sketched

you.

the what’s inside

that

no one sees.

Using high-lighter,

metallic ink,

and very little charcoal,

I could not find a medium soft enough

to define

your hidden heart.

The ice inside


 
Kaleidoscope I,

(pattern)

fracturing all the time

Heart breaks

–continuously

(chaining reactive)

–spirit implodes

constantly,

the revolutions of days

dulling shards

disjointing emotional skeleton

until

I no longer see

–or care to—

the incidental beauty

in skin-encased chaos

–just tumble

–reform

and reform.

Perpetually remodeling

inner terrain.

Formalist Arrangement

apology

ideology

is music to the ear,

a soothing rush

of empathy

that makes hurt disappear,

employing drums

and every thumb

this instrument atones,

undoing wrong

melodic song

confesses less condone,

in symphony

of sympathy

the chorus of lament,

is rising round of

“aw, that sucks”

belted with intent.
