A poem: Unfiltered

Clinical,
surreal emptiness.
chocolate-scented wood.
smell of new and
non-alcoholic intoxication-
life as art for art’s sake.

neon light flickers as you blink
infected by dizziness.

no longer tone-deaf to the harmonies
of your own soul,
you don’t shrink for someone else to grow.

An invisible corpse in the plastic bag
winks at you from the corner-
madness, it grows
in sanity.

lifeless but intense:
you don’t pray for another,
you prey for yourself.
