Smoke Cloud Incision

by Matthew Kruzmetra

apathetic vision
active indecision
stone washed memories
like a smoke cloud incision
ritual conformities
of addictions exhibition

media consumption
blank page assumption
thoughts like vapor
never enough on paper

translucent clarity
return to my void that carries me
wanting mental calamity
the edge of mind we cannot see
that brings me back to where I'll be

facing my exhibition
hazy brain indecision
blank paper on revision
with a smoke cloud incision
eyes now closing to the vision
