She douses my synapses
with her words
Coating the embers of my feral mind
poetry's panacea salve
portends a psychic blister

Madness brings
The traction of 10,000 competing thoughts
Now nullified
the synchronicity of a whisper

I walk the floor of my apartment
Like I'm lost in an unknown endless city
Nights stretch into days
I pose for
Poker face stares in a mirror
Red petals dripping lexicon
you know my favorite vice
still cadavers know no pity
even the graves of great men are ordained with mice
