  • Mechanisms of Sorrow

    We live in incendiary times,
    and ruffled tempers
    starch like timber
    shaded from the rain.
    Discordant dissatisfaction,
    a bellicose foreshadowing,
    a wealth of pain
    impending.
    The feral hint of menace
    claws.
    Await
    the fatal clap of lightening,
    let loose from reckless jaws.
    For what the heart
    in retribution, harbours,
    soon finds handy
    mechanisms of sorrow,
    to do its bidding.

      This has a very foreboding sense about it - and the word choices lend credence to the seriousness of the matters at hand. Your structuring is interesting too - causing pause at places which enhance that feeling of doom. Your writing always makes me sit up and take notice DWAYNE!

          I don't know what everything means, but the words are powerful, Dwayne!

            We are living in confrontational times, there is little patience for reasoned debate, the opposition is simply vilified.

            It is as if those who employ bigotry, are quick to turn disagreement into hate.

              And the end did not justify the means! Great write and I love the last five lines.

                  I had to soak in this one for a while to fully appreciate the musicality. The devices kind of crept up on me. I guess I'm used to parsing the message in your work first and foremost, Dwayne. It's a joy to perceive the artistry upon which that message rests.
