New poem by Lily Maureen O’Nan

Untitled

Cough, cough.
Where did the light go,
Or what,
Does it really do,
For a mind on chaos,
Drugs?
You said to me,
"Don't go sideways,"
But I slid.
I fell, I stumbled.
Fuck our little, 
Bubble.
Polarized images seek,
To create a society,
Of death,
A culture of depravity.
All I'm left with,
Is thought,
And perceptual discord.
