Notes of a Madman.

NOTES OF A MADMAN.

Cast amid a sea of conjecture
seething with mysterium and magic,
I unleash upon my psyche
the distorted phantasies
of an undisciplined soul.

Seduced by the romanticism
of a gibbet in darkness,
I sally past the contingencies of reality
in pursuit of divine retribution,
and aspire toward that which
must be accepted on faith alone.

My words warrant neither explanation
nor restraint,
for the notes of a madman
are understood by his own kind.

(From “Notes of a Madman”, my first published poetry book, 1987, Winston-Derek Publishers, Inc., USA.)
