Wilde Observations #19

A tossed salad of art, poetry and ideas.

“An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.”
— Oscar Wilde

From somewhere in the wilderness

Unleashed, unloosed,
a sledge hammer slaughter, unlawful
massacre of the daughters of justice;
hauling the slant-handled tools of malice,
verbal basting, thrashing the ignited glories wasting.

Slag busting, cattle rustling, between dreary echoes
and muted rainbows, decrying test-pattern indulgences
and platinum penitentiaries.

Sterile violence floods the altar
with opiated parasites in a ceremonial carnival
of discordant distractions.

Muffled bells chime in the secret chambers
where dead dreamers dance with unseeing eyes
midst palatial splendors.

Outside I remain, in the wilderness still,
renewing myself daily with my small portions of ecstasy.
