High Society – for Dverse


July 30, 2014 by petrujviljoen


rat face grinning

catatonic staring

nerve ends nibbled


high so cry deafening

scar tissue rupture

rabid clawing at my being


zealous formulation

invocation negation

abrogation of sensibility


crowd parts

crumbled coat on the floor

beau monde feasted

    Oh yes! being in a high society event can be this nerve-wracking. Your piece is very descriptive. 🙂

    When you get to the /scar tissue rupture/, things are getting critical; very original path to defining one perspective on getting high; or being high while writing; ala Ginsberg.


    • I still marvel at Howl. Do you know who Sinclair Beiles was? He was kind of involved with the Beats although people don’t really acknowledge him as one. I loved his Sacred Fix the best I think.


  6. love all the ‘ation’s’ . . . great write.
