“War Is Coming” poem by A.R. Salandy

Twist to the sound of crimson downpour
As late-night revelry forces abstention to dissipate
Into the evergreen forest of slacken desires,
A throbbing encephalon of intertwined interactions

Where raw realizations
And taught limbs act as vehicles
For stark lunacy,
Where inhibitions are snuffed out

And toxic consumption paints outer worlds
With crystalized infantility
And lacking maturity,
Where once enabled,

Vicious voices rise
To pluck at the embers
Of hidden secrets
That spill flaming fantasies

On pugnacious beings
Where warring masculinities
Contradict the sweet feminine divine
As radiant lustre decries

An intricate nexus of a community
Consumed by an eternal hunger
To obliterate all challengers
Of a generation directionless

Just begging to be provoked.
