inspired by In Eclipse challenge

Ethyl alcohol is merely but a fraction of their drunken, mutual, disastrous attraction. With toxic fumes rising and negating, two

chloroform-soaked lovers writhing and hating,

littering slurs to the crowd like frantic frenemies,

inundating their mouths with lethal ecstasy,

pulsing colors lighting up their star-crossed destiny, while a

surge of the masses pushes at their need to be

eclipsed into oblivion just for tonite.


Thank you for reading this mess!

    Your poem distills chaos and self-destruction to the pure, masochistic rage of a dance hall mob. All I can say is wow!
