This is 40

How many times now have you recited the same dialogue with your family, a vestigial reference to an organic moment of joy with them from ages past. Now though, this dialogue keeps the demons at bay, keeps it all from spilling forth because you don’t even know what will spill forth, but whatever it is,Continue reading “This is 40”

Split atoms

God’s benevolence is receding from the world as darkness envelopes it. Taboos are cloaking devices; things which slither and whisper and pry further open the abyss are hidden behind shimmering beams of passivity. There is no passivity in the wild evening sunlit air though: more astonishment, incomprehensible things which strike me dead in their fullness,Continue reading “Split atoms”

All things end in two endings

And coming around again in orbit, I see those of my own creation below and behind in the past of my present discontent.

The waves foamed white, dazzling and brilliant through an emerging sun.We were made whole again in the brief stillness of spent waves. The water fell back, ready to go again anew.Oh boundless glory, oh Ancient of Days,Oh unending anxiety, presage the end.The Son is eternal, yet sets unceasingly upon furrowed brows.And she is there alwaysContinue reading “Rescue us, if you even deign to”

Time Frozen

Piercing windows,Shattered smells,There is too much glory hereThe greens are dark in front backlit by a brimming and vibrant green redux.Leaves glimmer in the setting lightThey are imbued with an otherworldiness by embers of dying wind. The sun setting in the summer is a time frozen. The light is wild in the western sky andContinue reading “Time Frozen”
