Freeform Disillusion ~ MORALITY PARK

How many times
Will we walk in place
To face the cliff?
Approach the railing.
Bargain for another breath.
We dance around diversion,
Perverting moments of peace
To wring the sponge empty
Of all the smiles stored
In its ragged, jagged holes.
We fill our mouths
With tasteless words
That sound absurd.
Yet we chew and chew.
…and chew.
We suck on the candles
And roll our lolling tongues
To snuff out the flames.
We let the wax coat and cover
Until it smothers all chance
To reignite. To float in flight
Like Daedalus’s bright escape.
Feathers freely fall
As the wax drips and drips
In Dadaesque layers.

  1. This really spoke to me! I kept thinking about the dark corners of life and how there is an addiction to want more of the good things and secure them permanently, although that renders the good things bad. I am currently reading “My Brilliant Friend” by Elena Ferrante and this also made me think about the two friends who dare each other to face their fears.
