“EMERGENC(E/Y)” by Leah Cappelli

Ecstatic articulation, ornamental integration

Novel mosaics of meanings emerge


Sorting through the voluminous literature

You discover you are not the only one


Pain receptors are

Life affirming agents

That burning, yearning sensation

The lust for a life free from malady

The natural thrust toward the sanctuary


Magical and terrifying,

Fractured, kaleidoscopic ambitions and ideals,

Minute details, and film reels


Derailing from dissonance, your innocence

Subdivided between what you thought you knew

And what you now know is true


Traversing away from the obverse

Nursing the iterative verses

Once terse, now diverse
