Desire Unbidden

A lurching leaking creaking hull throws itself against the jaggedeness

Deck chairs scatter and masts brittle.

An ancient elephant barrels through the walls of a carefully designed room

Heaving and strewing in its wake.

A drunken oaf careens through the crowd, sweat-stained inebriate collides

And fumbles himself into the pavement.

The synchronicity of these is not lost upon the one who devours himself

Trapped in a hulking shell and reeking of discontent

Cursing the heart that thumps beyond his ribcage

And the seventh or sixth deadly sin that traps him in monotony.
