Day Four – “Break Down”

“There is a human wildness held beneath the skin that finds all barriers brutishly unbearable”
~ Jim Harrison from Songs of Unreason

BREAK DOWN

The nightmare’s voice
fills up your silence with jazz
MAD JAZZ
promises to free
up your body
fading the film to               b   l   a    c    k
wipe clean your slate
choose the           s  w   i   r   l      i n g           horns

that shred
that trembling
barbed wire
against the Parrish sky
stretch out the wings

stand upon the window

ledge

calling out
to the stars in their
own language

Fly beyond
