“Calm Up”


Gravel strewn like breadcrumbs
By Lisa Nielsen

Inspiration piece

Broken cement sprouts
chrome and glass and angles reminiscent of Kandinsky

Thru the looking glass below
sketchy unfinished sidewalks
welcome the lanky saunter of the hopeful.
Is this the view you were hoping for?  Has your rage placed well
between armoire
and divan?

Loneliness is a tower but you can’t feel its strength.
I am the inside scoop, the seeds of what made
you, threaten me daily.

Allow me to revel in this revelation:
there’s nothing left of us.

I’m that passerby, not tripping
over your bad intentions.
