peace in void
chaos in eden

blame my ills on
this world, then

in my shell recoil
sip a vinegar of pain

& hope on yesterday’s blessings
to o’ercome the portal of time
bring in its wings healing
& fresh air for weary lungs
as it was before

but, what i hear are
my moanings echo on the crying wind
my groanings weeping over the sea
