There should be madness
higher than star burst
lower than thump. How
should one attempt to punctuate
heartach? Commas,
explanation points! periods?

Shelly, Knight, cummings, even Eliot
describing waste, even Poe
cannot show but language
mathematical.

I also swear flowers,
i also ride violins, and rely on those who
share starry nights to decipher
emotion from word.

I told her my story
she replied "tear"
then gave me a tatter
so I'd have something to wear

I told him my story
and he said "fear"
then fed me a remnant
of his severed ear

I've decided it may be
only for me
the joining is or is not

basically

my focus remains blat
dark blat
with hope for the light
and a win

I'll leave it at that

Wow, I don't know where to begin! I think I enjoyed every line of this. I agree, the imagery in this is very cool. You caught my attention with the first words, and I love the idea of measuring madness. This was definitely a fun and exciting read for me.
