The Way of Sorrows (Sounds Depressing)

a gasp from
flickering void
said
don’t get me wrong
this
isn’t
a
lament
it’s just a
fact
swimming in
amniotic spread
packaged in the
aisle
of sciencereligionlaw
stacked by
corpses unsure
of
chaos
sprouting

in and around
valves and pink
budding to joy
if -someone- would
whisper
stroke
let
hatch in
comfort

fade in
to
14 tables of
14 families
earthy stone &
cartilage
hypersensitive &
numb
strategically placed at
stations
chaos plucked
where they will be self
subjected
to
suffering
and
insults
during their passion

fade in
to
delightful animals
climbing
each other
at window unwriting uwitting
the story of
stars and sun
with lutes that sing of
what abuse is
enveloping notes
cascading onto
beautiful tapestries of
wounds
in 14 constellations
trying to understand
what
chest is
so they may
burrow underneath
for at least
a beat
and know
that laughter
is not
interdit
never was
in this intergalactic
immortal supermarket sweep
animal instruments
howl
to
hand back their
skulls
before they are
stolen
give back
their hands
so they
can stop
grabbing
incite
to
catch
themselves
and
