P is for POETRY (uh, and I guess Psychosis, too ...) - #7/8

... and more poems ...

                    DIRE ATTRACTIONS

                    insane patterns,
                    psychotic lines,
                    all runs crazed here,
                    all twisted, diced,
                    and rearranged
                    to puzzles of being,
                    Gordian knots in time
                    and convoluted space
                    no map for this,
                    it's all the map;
                    dimensions shifting,
                    directions deranged,
                    no way to chart
                    a course that leads
                    to saner ground
                    and better light
                    how can we tell
                    which way is up?
                    all vectors taste
                    of the abyss,
                    and gravities,
                    a chaos sphere
                    of dire attractions
                    into death spins
                    too much tension
                    twists apart the grid,
                    things fall from context
                    and into void;
                    all is conflict,
                    raging and blind,
                    a darkness sweeping
                    into lower states
                    frustration seeds madness
                    which blooms in violence,
                    the frantic lashing
                    against the outside;
                    insanity fills the world,
                    all is striking and breakage,
                    fragmented vistas
                    and shattered decay
