through dark layers
my sea of normal
What is this and
why now and am I
all washed up
in this murky sludge?
Tentacles reach out
pulling in strained
nets of strangers and
enemies I’ve never
Seen or met before
I take stock of
long gone underground
waiting to be acknowledged
I want to rant and rave about something. Or swim in an ocean of poetic images. But the ‘something’ that keeps haunting me is Trance.
Why? Because it’s complex at every level. A reality that both attracts and puts me off.
But Trance won’t be kept waiting. What self-evident truths already swim beneath the surface of my everyday life, unacknowledged?
This might be a slow process. Nonetheless, I’d rather be a turtle making it across the road than a squirrel, possum, or crow caught in the headlights. Though there is something to be said for flaming out.
Thanks for visiting and reading!
