Essence of Effervescence

Fear becomes you
in a lockdown culture,
  violence is beauty--
Greed has wings
  to try trouncing
even the most quiescent
cloud-walkers amongst us--
But she will float on
   beyond your berating
            float on

May! May! Mayday! Sharing on the Tuesday Platform in the Imaginary Garden

  1. Your first three lines read like a marriage between social media and what too much of society considers important, even essential. It's scary, almost as terrifying as winged greed infecting everything it touches.

  3. But she will float on
    beyond your berating

    Nothing is going to put her down. She's beyond all the negative comments! A strong character!

  4. Please pardon my concrete mind, Marian, as I read this, am thinking about liberty and freedom, as the theme messages of your poem. And, the impact of an oppressive ruling elite, willing to try to control them, and failing. May President Trump and his crones, meet such a fate.

  6. Do we ever reward anything but violence and greed?-- I better be a cloud walker....

  7. There is a pleasing sense of movement in this poem, especially in:
    'Greed has wings'
    and
    'But she will float on
    beyond your berating
    float on'

  10. Doesn't seem to be a very bubbly mood here, but sad and chilling.

  11. People, especially men, tend to get caught up in the crowd they run with. I just finished watching "______ femme" on ABC's Night Line TV program. It was about the fearful lives (of men) the women of Honduras are forced to live with. Some make it to the U.S. Border where they can be granted refugee status. But now by presidential order the number of refugees we can take has been halved. That mentality is spreading across South and Central America. Honduras has on female murdered every 16 hours. Closer to us, Juarez is horrible but I don't know its murder rate. Besides murder though are attacks on women, even wives by their husbands.
