+ Uttered Chaos

it started slowly without screams
it slept in luminous taffeta
it started with an annoying bird—
a persistent cat
shattering symmetry

impaled beneath me
the galaxy speaks strangely
an ocean of scars
his eyes are fire or
a pipe dream

interrupted violence
goes unpunished
floods through temptation
needle, glass, flame
the treachery of abandonment

I should have noticed
the uninterrupted moment
when it would be worse when
we would become
all the emptiness of stars
