Divided And Many Sided - Poem by shimon weinroth

the mountain belched, dyspeptic innards
grumbling intestines, and bowels of the earth
erupted, spewed, vomited hot burning lava
red molten rock and smoking fumes

filled the air with havoc
heated temperatures at searing heights
melted proximites chased organic species, yet
trauma becomes a weird grand show,
a spectacle of awe and delight
photography and familiar sight
settles some of the fright

on an hundred TV channels
curiosity knows no bounds,
looking over the rim
on the voyage of the voyeur
vertigo grasps and hurls me in

sitting in my armchair is so confusing
millions of subatomic particles
passing through my body
make me feel itchy and queasy
and my soul uneasy
