sound escape

gentle plucking of strings
wail of mad saxophone building crescendo
dj bending aural delights
evangelic choirs transcending heaven

eyes closed.

mind shut.

i’m gone.


the madcap is out in the open

there’s a thin line
between sanity and madness . . .

so thin
that the ones
who lose their marbles

never know
how and when
it happens.


in the bar

nowhere is a place that solitude never visits.
you see, lying is much easier if there’s belief . . .

darkness shrouded beauty,
won’t you take me somewhere else?

you’re an illusion, but it’s ok;
tonite i don’t mind being wrong.
