DOWN THROUGH THE MADNESS
(11/16/06)


the feet
stick a bit
at first
afraid to lose
their grip
on the substantial

soon the shuffle
becomes a walk
then a trot
kinetics working
its wicked magic
to the point where
a headlong run
ensues
and soon
full flight is taken
as the once
recalcitrant feet
trail out behind
no longer
needed

speed increases
and visibility blurs
the way is dark
and narrow
but the walls
are warm
soft
and guiding
a sebaceous sponginess
steadying the course
forgivingly absorbing
errant deviations
in direction

it's
a magnificent ride
that comes suddenly
to
a
halt
an altitudinal suicide
splattering completely
upon a sidewalk
of reality

no matter
the motion spent
a light now rules
a cold light
cooling the soul
from within
an absolute illumination
that enlightens
then blinds
forever cauterizing
the wounds
caused
by a world
quite insane
