An Unwelcoming Paradise

Whisper by aimhelix

Whisper by aimhelix

The smoke languishes
beneath
an ocean
of silent rhapsody
heedless of thoughts

touching
on its birth
the brittle wonder
of undercooked lives
extolling the muted

horrors of illegitimacy–
folding into the arms
of thankless wind.
It dwells there
in Ahura’s

pointless blue oblivion
and considers,
for the few solid
moments
before dissipation becomes

too intimate
a reality
for which divorce
is a solution,
the merits of bartering

the security
of its flame
for a few shallow breaths
in an unwelcoming
paradise.
