Irregular Perpetuation, by Eugene Zeng

Crisped chrysalises, wrappers dappled aureoles

seductively sway

                 before unfocused dewy globes,

                                   sunken in a fleshy mesh of sanguinary blotches

                                                                 adorning a fossilized marble frown.

Jerky legs, under foreign operation,

spasm forward, subserviently heeding an intuitive map,

while my heart, sideways,

thumps that familiar tango,

Blues reverberating incompetence.

Ebon charcoal, daubed by droning whooshes

and effulging compound eyes

of swarming metallic beetles,

scurrying past me—


Awkwardly, throbs my sideways heart.

Every paralyzing pulsation

propels a decaying carcass—

lurching forward, staggering;

a moth at death’s bridle, patch-worked fabric wings seared

by blinding brilliance

yet mindlessly allured

to that fleeting luminescence;

the urges of my sideways heart.

with every Thump irregular,

cacophonic frustration emanates from

my entombed gaunt soul, a shrieking

abomination, devouring animosity,

caged within putrid ribs.

Simply craving, anticipation drooling;

Ascertaining value, bathing acceptance.

Yet failures, festering mosquito miasmas,

Aggravate my body, shipwrecked in infested swamps.

That infuriating, perpetual, teeth-grinding, skull-numbing tempo;

never ceases to remind me

of my infidelity.

Brewing, a storm hungers in the sky,

showering the world with a harsh, soaking pestilence.

Yet, enduring, my acrimonious heart still beats,  

I know not when

That incessant noise will silence

But for now,

as it beats

an abhorrent rhythm never ceasing,

I will remain on this Earth;

dragging along

my corroded cadaver

my broken mind

my wandering soul.

-Eugene Zeng
