An Ode to Chaos


Amidst The Chaos
the Metal Machines
scream Bloody Murder

Amidst The Chaos
a Christmas tree burns
while children watch

Amidst The Chaos
I fall in love with you
over and over again.

Amidst The Chaos
I am no one, nothing
amidst the chaos.

Amidst The Chaos
Vonnegut says: 'In the water I am beautiful'
You are beautiful too!

Amidst The Chaos
the hookers say hello!
I waive farewell.

Amidst The Chaos
I say The Lord's Prayer
Deliver us from Evil.

Amidst The Chaos
Hamlet patiently awaits
for Jesus to return.

Amidst The Chaos
some of us find redemption
amidst the chaos.

Amidst The Chaos
in splendorous revelry
I celebrate my life

Amidst The Chaos
my mind is anywhere
but amidst the chaos.

Amidst The Chaos
babies and puppies sleep in cardboard boxes,
rain fall softly.

Amidst The Chaos
a hummingbird says hello!
to this old fool

High Moon over Neza
Angry lovers in Condesa
Rain falls harder.

Amidst The Chaos
your memory fades away
so be it, so it goes.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
