Favorite Quote:
"I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day."
-James Joyce


Its chains and locks,

A dominating embargo.

The rejection of joy.

Its cold, metal links,
Void of bliss.
An azure cocoon in shackles.

I knew metal to have no color.
A slight nuance in the blinding luster,
A frozen reflection of emotion.

A new sound; the chains begin to unravel.
A subtle polyphony,
Dissonant wind.

Within the steel, muffled voices.
A mad man’s symphony,
Razing all but sadness.

From the chains,
Grotesque, blue wings.
Sorrowful, marine metamorphosis.

The distorted faces,
Painted on the wings,
Cry for retribution.


The author's comments:

The frustration of depression. The futility of depression. I attempted to grasp these concepts through the metamorphosis of color and sound; the voice and blue.
