A. S. Coomer — The Dichotomy of Existence

It’s a story full of endings;

an end to the night full of beginnings;

an original poetic sequence

of tired, worn-out cliches;

the most surreal yet

most concrete images

you ever saw;

the sweetest trumpet’s blow

marring the discordant masterwork;

the addict with clarity;

the lawyer with a heart full of conscious.

Fuck it,

you try to write

about it.
