Apocalypse - Poem by s./j. goldner

the weather went mental
after we stopped talking
as if dysfunction
had set upon the heavens.

    Dysfunction is an interesting word to use here. I have to agree with the other commenters below...you say so much with so few words. (Report) Reply

    Indeed. Sometimes a few careless words can send the air masses into chaos. (Report) Reply

    A brief but potent piece of how one's world can fall apart when so dependent on another, when that other is lost and the foundation is hardly there anymore. The curtness of it speaks a power that takes a couple moments to discern and truly sink in.

    Sus (May I call you Sus?) The more I read of your poems the more I want to reading...your sight and reflection is addicting. (Report) Reply

    How you did this in four lines - just amazing! 'You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows' (Dylan) As below, so above - to reverse the aphorism attributed to Hermes Trismegistus. Wow. I'm quite blown away. (Report) Reply

    once i wrote ' i never feel at home unless there is chaos in the cosmos' I think you may understand that line, better than anyone else could.
    this is the first of your work I've read, and I must say, it's a perfect piece to make one fall in love with the pen of another...
    Always,
