Inspiration piece

Passion – a whelming over thrusting active force

Tensile, heat seeking, volcanic, concussive, consuming, inhale/exhale

Exhaust of love, joy, rage through nerve endings telegraphing

Outward – Outlaw through the bone frame

Focused, fusing, hurling body-soul to height

To depth, to sky, to frenzy

Dispelling, recharging, building in the presence of

A trigger: flesh and blood, ideology or value

Transforming all into a new wherever

Where reason lies comatose on the lava shore left behind.
