Treasure Island

Sherrie KolbCassel


The Seduction of Chaos


Swirling winds sweep silently
as detritus is strewn about
in empty space, which can be
penciled on graphs as frenetic apices on parabolas.

Detritus is strewn about
giving the appearance of
chaotic collision,
an illusion in which gravity is invisible,

Giving the appearance of randomness,
like chance encounters,
unlikely couplings of lovers, temporary and tempestuous,
in fits and starts - and methods of madness.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Chaos poem and pantoum combined. First attempt at pantoum. I found it very difficult to write. It required a great deal of attention to detail. I will attempt more of this type of poetry toward improvement.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
