P is for POETRY (uh, and I guess Psychosis, too ...) - #5/8

Yep, we got poems ...




                    WHO SEEDS THIS PARADE


                    1
                    scattered remains
                    of what we were;
                    Christmas baubles
                    dropped on steel,
                    jagged yet shiny,
                    sadly beautiful,
                    bright cutting edges
                    and unending pain
                    2
                    comic stances
                    gone all unknown
                    in the strange world
                    of twisted time;
                    the bus driver whispers
                    and turns to mime,
                    we have no idea
                    who seeds this parade
                    3
                    blocks array
                    now beyond count,
                    what might stack
                    or perchance build
                    with these left here?
                    we transgress lines
                    and seek the sea
                    unable to recount why
                    4
                    winter echoes
                    hard amid the gaps:
                    the chill, the freeze,
                    the frosting of the glass,
                    the warp and huddle,
                    the unhappy shake,
                    the loss and lack,
                    the endless need
                    5
                    can these be miracles
                    or are they hallucinations?
                    what appears now here
                    surely can not be,
                    or have we phased
                    from one world to another
                    where what is not
                    evolves out of thin air?
