BREAKDOWN

by November 9, 2008 0 comments

The Dance of the Cosmos,
phantom dancers pirouetting
in outer/inner space,

the grotesque, beautiful
ghostly Dance of the Cosmos;

Ghosts, eerie beings of the sad,
fractured universe, becoming
bizarre Beauties

grasping and searching for the
incomprehensible

&

Dancing in Chaos,
evolving, dissolving in the
Dance of Madness,

vanishing in still life across all
galaxies

&

the universe is breaking down.

The Spirits move,
universal motion in still life,
invisible, electrical motion of all,

creatures strange and familiar,
mysterious objects alive and dead,

&

even dead things are filled with Spirit,
but a secret Force of Darkness is
spreading across the universe,

a contagious, hidden virus seeking
destruction, thriving on intense fear,

helplessness, and horror,
craving heinous acts, and shrieking
silently across all galaxies

&

the universe is breaking down.

A catatonic schizophrenic sits in a
corner of a small square room painted
in soothing white,

hunched over, alone, and wearing a
mask of madness-

a glazed, blank soulless look of distance-
he sits in the little crazy room within the
antediluvian mental hospital

located in an unknown place on earth;

his electrical brain has already broken down;
indeed, he has suffered a nervous breakdown

&

now, he is free, perhaps, to drift across a vast
universe,

for no one can stop him,
no one can reach him,
no one can speak to him,

as he wanders across an invisible universe,
a wounded universe that is also breaking down,

desperately in need of repair,
a universe that welcomes a crazy man

&

beckons him to think and behave freely,
courageously,
incomprehensively,

a universe that waits for a madman to dream.

But in the meantime, the universe is
breaking down.

The Dance of the Cosmos,
phantom dancers pirouetting
in outer/inner spac

&

the universe is breaking down;

Ghosts, eerie beings of the sad,
fractured universe,

grasping and searching for the
incomprehensible

&

the universe is breaking down;

The Spirits move,
universal motion in still life,
invisible, electrical motion of all,

&

the universe is breaking down;

A catatonic schizophrenic sits in a soothing
white room in an antediluvian mental
hospital,

having suffered a mental breakdown,

&

he wanders across an invisible universe
discovering to his surprise that the
universe is breaking down too,

waiting for repair and transformation,
waiting for healing in the vast Void

where phantom dancers dance the
Dance of the Cosmos

&

he is needed too to mend the wounded universe,
he is needed too,

&

in an invisible, poignant moment,
the crazy man smiles.
