Wisdom Consoles Fear

Wisdom will

console failure.

Fear nor doubt

the truth

which is that

fulfilled in peace

your destiny

is determined.

The Darkest Carnival 

I speculated about

A dark and dusky night

with the devil rooking

all those carnival tricks,

and the Ferris wheel

revolving the sad music

of doubt.

A weird crazy sight.

For a long long time

it was night.

Only I was giving up.

I ran like mad.

A hundred miles

saved my life.

Mad Energies 

Tremendous energies met head on,

wandering in hallucination 


Digging everything

they became

perceptive and blank.

The mad ones

desirous of everything


Burn burn

like exploding stars.
