FATIGUE #poetry by jay

We bleed fatigue now
as contagion and war spreads itself
like jam across the universe

jamming mutations / mutating jam 
from reason to reason to gone fishin’
perhaps no reason existed, just mutation.

Fatigue recites a Soliloquy
to the few who engage 
a wide-eyed gaze 

at the mutant vibration 
of mutations—
living amongst our dead.

We plod on with our day
fatigue welded to the end 
of our words—

muscles atrophied / nerves deadened.

Fatigue engulfs like petrol on water
flames / bombs / fire's
in our mind’s eye
skies lit / trauma’s blaze

a trail through Millennial moments—

but those mutants are mutating
again / the bitter bitten 
bastard enemies
of our future dreams—

Act One complete!

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
