Merits of Madness

Poesy plus Polemics

twin demons dance
among neurons
hellish the music
electronic synthesis
plays in the mind
personality pulled by
two disparate tempos
a slow and go agony
grappling with ganglia
desperate to grab onto
temperate moments
slip-sliding between
the too little too much
blunt intensities
polarized quashing
the peace of pedestrian
passage through life

but then…

genius is suited to
dancing with demons
to banishment off
to the edges of sanity
rarefied precincts
of furious function
the cognitive freewheel
of madness propelled
many great contributions
to arts and to sciences
black and white
bleak and bright
products of changeable
suffering intellects
gifts that would prove
providential to we
unafflicted dull masses
