In decay

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

In decay

Banished from the sacred house,
Thrown out into the cold, stormy decaying city,
It's misty, allowing the virus to infect,
Will I lose my way and be overcome?
Will I become undone and forget the depth of my teachers..
The growling sounds of an intoxicated soul, everywhere
The witchy laughter of a tormented whore, everywhere
What will I make of them as an object of pity
Their sufferings and the painful screams only remind me of my distance from the house
I cover my scars with art
My immunity only increases the depths of my misery
No relation, just a study
An endless study
I miss the climbing flowers on the wall
I even gave them names
The fresh youthful air
Beyond the pond
Let it stare.

I am no longer there.
