100 poems/52 weeks challenge’ 2018
Chaos by the artist, Elliana Esquivel.
Chaos of mind,
I sit with you at a chess table
and you gamble like a pirate king.
The negotiations are let out,
and it is a dance of seduction
of an exoticized Spain
where bleeding roses are championed
because they fight against the brutality of white noise.
But I have to sleep
and the mattress seduces no allegory,
for my reader who traverse these words
and so I wake,
allowing you to condense my peace,
all in the name of poetry.
Chaos of my mind,
lend me demons of an emotional excess
that may sprout into a poem
of exorcism rites.
Author Notes: This one is to refer Wordsworth, with my own finishes.
