dark room

tHEY shocked me into consciousness;

Bad Bunny blasting on the speakers

larger than human inspiration can bear

in the Spanish; you see, not knowing

knowing not what is expressed

and articulated in foreign language

languange foreign to the listening entity.


I burn, burning brighter than you;

i compare, contrast and vibrate

with the phoenix-like becoming;

the rhythm, balance, coordination

and timing, it's combustible

like chemical dangerous, unstable.


the possibilities reveal

themselves in their Time;

how young my tired blood feels;

these old eyes wide and reeling in pain;

life is for the living, or so tHEY say

in this dream.
