Running through my mind,
Running through my veins,
A silica odor, dust walks through a fresh desert night
Cool air beneath and above the sea
A warm furnace smell, I don’t understand
Intricate to rise and receive without knowing
Up ahead in a virtue distance
A mysterious poisonous effluvium light-     
My face feels like a leaf'
My sun holds up its own pendulum rods
Inflammation comes and settles in for the night,
There it stands in a pertinacious manner, with quality
I resurrect this air created from madness, all over again
Twilight, rain stranger than strange
Visions, pursue my path into an infested dark pasture
"From the red Heaven I fell into the waters of a cobalt Hell"

Perhaps this venerable moment, will pass slower than slow
If I accept, and then decline
Would this balance the precocious state I live in?
How about when wrong directions follow my promiscuous ways 
Is my conglomeration of ideas, no longer safe?	
When I no longer value the values of the young
Will I sleep at the mercy of his ancient heart
They're the voices give and take from our health

Today, those soft, perfect eyes are calling from far away,
Ashes high, vapors and infection welding me
The bright skies swallow every thin silver line,
Where the clouds sit somehow~ in bacteria
   UNITY! Like a common curse
Always, wanting more than love can touch

We are living' it up with no alibis!
A way to be and not to BE!
The champagne leaves their cup
Awaken in a life, disturbed ~ NOW INTERRUPT!
Only in this world, lava will reach her lips
Prisoners and doers; 
All night…. Too late for a treatment
Lungs, decaying, evil rats
Direction, affection, ending all the inhalation

Running through my lungs,
Flat-lined my life ____/\ /\___ ___/\______/\___ _______________

My Mom taught me this longest word in the dictionary at age 7. I can't believe you wrote a piem about it...brilliant...why didnt i think of that? Beautiful turns of phrase and far from terse verse which i loved.

Riveting and astonishing to the very end. Absolutely loved this one! I agree with a lot of the comments here--and yes, the title really drove me in. That is to say, where it drove me is somewhere out of this world---YOUR mind PD, is simply brilliant. Always, Laura

I'll admit that I was attracted to read this piece because of the title, which I absolutely cannot pronounce. I enjoy the rich way you assemble words, almost stream of consciousness, which I also enjoy. Great work! Jack

Hi, my dearest sis and friend PD! I'm stopping by on the soup to say HI . I'm reading this poem again and it reminds me the time when I memorized it. Still I can say the word so fast pneumonoultramicrospicsiliconvocanoconiosis. Well, I hope you're doing great. I can't stay longer on soup today because I'm writing a script for a big event in school. I might come back this Sun or next wk. Take care always and thank you for visiting the other day. love always and forever, Leonora

Wow, PD, you have highlighted the longest word in the dictionary if I'm not mistaken. You are giving readers a run for their money. Congrats. I love to toy with words, remember antidisestablishmentarianism? That one is bit dated for you, I'm sure. Thanks for your comments on my space poem entry, btw. James
