SAINTS SERGIUS AND BACCHUS. Byzantine icon of Saint Sergius and Saint Bacchus

as if an aura buzzed

a neon glow along an edge

of a byzantine saint

a low level dread burns

on the periphery of his days

like a star verging on collapse

everything everywhere constantly

distracts toward simple

chaos toward tangents

askew to well ordered

paths desired in his constant

scrabble for affirmation

instead of beatific joy

in the exploding universe

    Not much work. Just write and publish as I can. I don’t really have advice other than what I just said. I don’t actively try to build an audience. Although I do appreciate those who read, like, and comment on my poems.
