Atmosphere, a poem by Angela Bowden

Chaos looms
Inside
Outside

Choices
Few
Not choices at all

Consequences ensue
Inside
Outside

Tainting
Erasing
Dividing Groups

Chaos looms
Inside
Outside

Pulsating
Vibrating
Shifting

Doomed

  1. A familiar tiredness visits me as a I read this. The world we are living in. Looming chaos. Yes. I feel it in my bones and no real choices.
