In the Air: Carnival of Forbidden Sensations

in the air - Spectre of the Brocken

Energy wanes, 

a grateful nod to the heavens. 

The persistent beat, 

looping in its blatant cadence, 

threatens to drive a man to the brink of madness.


a squadron in chaotic flight, 

execute daring dive-bombs. 

Among the frenzy, 

the aroma of fried dough hovers the air. 

Daring me to jump headfirst

without checking the depth 

into the shallow carnival of forbidden sensations
