cognitive passages

By indefined

  passages are lost
in an age left behind
where the cognitive cost
is ​burning the blind

dry nib neurotics
are hanging parchment
on the cross
 a textured travesty
of aqueous ink
straining to mummify
the loss

maniacal mental
mad as a march hare
unbalanced unhinged
not without a care

tinted time entwined
spurned ghost accord
the blood had signed
soul could not afford

an abstract craft
de.void emotion
the faithless shaft
a.void her notion

wet nib erotics
are wringing parchment 
from the loss
 a silk sheen travesty
of draining ink
claiming to ressurect
the cross

passages left in
a lost age reminds
that the cognitive cost
is ​burning the blind
