Worm

 a poem by Joshua Brown


Harsh lights beaming down

Laughter from an empty clown

Cameras watching every move

Cacophony of sounds arouse


Hell runneth over.

 

Clear windows look out

To colorless walls about

Adverts beset all around

A soulless musician bows.


Hell waves with kindly smile.


A normal life and day

Propagandized as gay

While flames tell their story proud

Scripted into the never-ending now.


A worm am I, but yet I strive.

Alive.

Awake to the flames.
