Sonic Boom

broken barrier

of futility

precious bleed

of need

subsumed in catastrophe

this split atomic seed

and broken seal

of longing

a lustered appeal

to succeed

beneath the rancor

of society’s

vision of me

and i peel the sweet

residue that you leave

for you loved complete

the desparate salps

that bound me
