July Collage Poem 2: Pain and Darkness

entry picture

Out of the land came beauty
and a beautiful headache
School of madness, replete with cat
Love from within me
Dancing within yourself 
Several days later 
Transient to your ways of love 
in this hidden place, 
the darkness you thought would protect you, 
but the light remains in my mine
Dance it out in post-Covid Strasbourg 
with Nietzsche and Jung
We return to the streets, 
everything back to normal, 
except that we wear 
bedsheets and masks
whether today or tomorrow
hope shall shine through 
changing beauty for grimness.

Out of the land
we had poetry
with a wicked smile
brushing not with colour
but strokes of dancing madness.
