The Age-Old Room

Parted Perceptions of

Particular Persons, DIVIDED by

The Reasoning and Rationality

Of Man –

An oath sworn Failed to curse,

Nor did bellow to the yellow walls and

Blackened Roof. Thus,

Windows remained

A Gapless Grey and

Opinions filled the floor

Like an Overload of Soot and

DEAD Particles.

I was the Chimney,

Smokey and Impartial,

As each corner

Of the Room Perceived it’s own DOOM.

And the fire spread Eternally indifferent

To the flickering flakes of it’s forlorn Ashes.
