CAROL BORZYSKOWSKI
Sail Away
It is not enough to have the bottom drop out, or gaping holes appear in the fabric of your world, because nausea sweeps you through that, but the blank wall of time stark, bleak, stretched into murky dimness your eyes can never penetrate, no chance forever in fact, that, is what stops you, kills the desire even for self-flagellation. Yawning emptiness, knowing you will survive not knowing why you should. Heavy cold airlessness, not even self-pity can survive that amount of barrenness. Worse yet, when your eyes turn inward to delve, dissect and review, blankness invades there too. No pictures form, no breath stirs, no sounds, no feelings of any kind to hold, that is the final image: the empty boat that carries you out to sea not caring, not feeling, not even knowing when you leave

NICK BRUNO The Art of Poetic Cleansing
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool. - John Lennon
The ivy glistens with the morning rain as he clambers up the latticework to the leering spire; above the leaves' reach the looking down is considerable and always fashionable. The climb up is precarious, but he feels well worth the view of the nose hairs, inches away from parietal lobe near the purported crux of their industry. His quick ascent causes the crack of link beneath his feet. The slimy leaves slip from his grasp and he falls head-long onto the sedges below. The surge of pain deadens his senses. He wakes inside a room filled with wall-papered words; succumbs to the tug of creative urgency, but does not know where to look or what letters to choose. He stares at them so long that they crisscross on the rods and cones of inverted logic ingraining themselves on retinal banks the walls of ars poetica purged to white.
