Tower of Babel

Tower
of Babel
I will not
mourn your fall.

Hoary
heights
profane
the sky.

Humiliation
will cure
your false
pride.

Tower
of Babel
I will not
mourn your decent.

Gaudy
spectacle
blinds
searching eyes.

Destruction
of illusions
will unveil
the light.

Tower
of Babel
I will not
mourn your fall.

 

Elbow to Elbow Eyes Astray

Electronic
hallucinations
crave our
attention.

While
cacophonous sound
competes for our
thoughts.

Elbow
to elbow
eyes
astray.

Sipping
comforting poisons
served
by the glass.

Drawn
together
by human
need.

Alone
together
in private worlds
of flashing screens.

Seeking
one another
elbow to elbow
eyes astray.
