footnotes to pained glory seeking vengeance

Tissot’s “Flight of the Prisoners” · Wikipedia


life resides not in freedom

but in struggle for survival

agonizing lament and ebullient chaos

for it is before the precipice of Gehenna

where hearts and minds collect themselves

suited in boots and bowels

for the rocky march homeward

dreaming that one day the stars and moon

will recognize life below

beneath the placid breeze and virulent waves
