September 9, 2016 - No Escape

NO ESCAPE

And it doesn’t matter what they say
how they try to fight against it
pretend worlds going up in smoke
flying apart like last year’s leaves
shredded and forgotten
fertilizer for the next crop
because the Truth faces us every day
square in the eyes
there is no escaping the cycle
I am life and death
the sublime simplicity
ticking away like clockwork
every agony down to the second
every triumph perfectly synchronized
every part played beautifully
the divine actors perpetually gracing the stage
What do the charlatans know of this?
their world of confetti trod into the sewers
like blackened slush from Winter's sorrow
