“Art is Individualism, and Individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. Therein lies its immense value. For what it seeks to disturb is monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.” — Oscar Wilde

Sideways

within the inner quiet

that which appears essential soon dissipates

to become what it is.

drifting flakes of brilliance

cascading, flavors of luminescence

splashing from fountains of promise

the timid roll-playing troubadour

distracted by his imminent demise

holds the broken mirror, wondering.

oaken whispers, saturated in sweet raspberry

tenderness, stemmed glasses raised

in celebration…
