The poem(s) are below...



Paper peels itself from the walls with ease
like leaves returning to the soil in curled 
fetal positions. 
Repressed energy then surges outwards, 
like glaciers parading their legacies 
to mountains in silent grief. 

While the rain taps in the valleys
on arid surfaces with propositions of life 
to molecular corpses, 
like dust returning in hopeful stupefaction 
to a taut epidermis. 

Air rips holes into itself all around
to expose a singularity of infinite density, 
where stars choose to return as 
black holes to burn 
the fuels that were once 
their own. 

And a nebula of memories 
will spill its ink onto the air
about the head of a man kneeling
in stupefaction,
like an enchantment. 
Diffusing outwards 
Life's intoxicating tragedy.

    This is beautifully written. And I suppose you are right: we will never learn from our mistakes.
