Pop Culture II

Who are the seekers in this post-modern, pop-culture?
Are there any truths to be found?

Relativism and
Deconstructuralism, art and sophistry…nonsense

Many claim they see truths, still, they will not name what is
Crawling backward through the cave

Pop-art and music
Advertising, decay, an intellectual vacuum

Spiritually decrepit, ostracizing
As unenlightened

Those who would critique
Its way, empty culture, the rotten canvas

Gray and soft as rotted flesh, the liminal field
Non-committal and rife with the absurd

Pop, the great distraction
Modeling mediocrity, singing odes to the oblivious

We climb into the sky atop buildings without foundations
Scraping and fawning

Tilting and collapsing, babbling
In the tongue of chaos

Praising princes, pop icons
Preening on the pedestal, wobble and topple

Disintegrate in ruin

Pop Culture I

Showers of needles
Piercing silken skin, pin holes, rivulets of blood

Ruptured arteries, the pulsating flow, venting
Crimson agony

Mutilated senses
The flood of endorphins, pain, intoxication

Rushing adrenals, the pounding arrhythmia
Of a broken heart

Tear meat from the bone
Rent flesh, a breakfast for crows, carrion devils

With their whips of fire, languishing in the feast, fear
Limp, broken bodies

Children at play, like
Chicks in the yard, they cost, the weak among them

Trampled in the dust, they peck to death the different
Leave them for the worms

A new bath of shame
Our tragedies of romance, exposed, horrified

Petulant artists, relent, lament entropy
Heat death and drowning

The loss of passion
Patterns of nihilism, hemlock and self-doubt
