burlesquing a bohemian scaramouche

recklessly chaotic surrender
 midway untrained assimilating
thought patterns struck by twilit
    idiosyncratic contractions'
 irrational heart dotted i's 
   of contradictory falsities, 

pushing past buttoned loops
 orchestrating emotional surges
  coasting sideways 'twixt
 high as kites' paroxysm 

saw Jesus before bloom 
   was off rose's thornily 
fumbled holy water's
 bloody crucified testaments

mid looking glass passion
 of hysterics death's rallies
  standing on sidelines
    musing boxed refrains' 
    hallucinated confusion, 
 wholly plummeting
   metaphorical indulgences

nonsensically dissuading
      inartistic translations
    of rhetorical persuasions

forfeiting divine secrets
            halfway bent chimeras, 

trashing an otherwise ominous 

shrill screeching revenant 
       expediting manifested
     liquidizing bastardizations'
               bantered escapism,

like belladonna and nightshade
      intoxication wickedly exigent,

trilling motley eclipses of

  darkly boggled gray fog nuclei 

burlesquing a bohemian scaramouche 

     furthermost an elusive raptus seizing

            rhapsodically serpentine delusions

Ditto what Chris said below, a wild ride. You are quickly becoming one of my faves. Carry on.

Talk about needing a shower and being out of breath, wow, what a ride. This poem was like a roller coaster of amazing thoughts and ideas, slowly climbing upward to new heights then dropping the bottom out so the rush can be felt in the deepest parts of our minds. This was amazing Paloma.
