Λutumnal Λlumni

Listen to Λutumnal Λlumni by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Ship To Wreck Instrumental by Florence + The Machine

Fell into an autumn haze
Awakened in a sprawling maze
In all my days
Had ne’er felt so befuddled
My thoughts were muddled
Words amiss
Slur of whispers
Heard amidst
The thermal drift soliciting admission to my bubble

The hedge maze readied checkmate
Thus I trusted my cadet days
To give pet names to the barricades in view
Seemed the best way to make headway
Was to head towards the treadway
Lending dead weight to reanimate in bloom

Rumour had it
Panic had a habit of inhabiting
Doctoring the canny knack for knocking back the Aspirin
Pondering appeared the only clear way back from shattering
Only way to cease the skin unravelling

Channelling the energies
Felt dazzling
Essentially abandoning a state of mind some way deprived of sense to me
Canvassing my dreams to such a staggering degree
Amidst the scattering debris
Of that unflattering to me
Backing me fanatically to pack the heat attacking me
Amass the gases trapped in me
And breathe them out with dragon teeth

Underneath the gypsy moon
Grew tipsy on the kiss of its perfume as it permissed a cryptic clue
Richly hued the mist drifted succinctly through the full eclipse
Whispering of fuller lips
Of wooded cliffs
With unrestricted view to where the air is clean
Where here and there declare between
Compelling scene so scarcely seen
By those too scared to dare to dream

Fell into an autumn haze
Awakened in a sprawling maze
In all my days
Had ne’er felt so befuddled
My thoughts were muddled
Words amiss
Slur of whispers
Heard amidst
The thermal drift soliciting admission to my bubble

Labyrinthine maze aside
This habitat seemed spacious site
Tapping into playful side
My vital signs then stabilized
Snapping stack of cable ties
I favoured brave
To jaded eyes
Made my way back rapidly
To aptly claim my famous prize

Angels at my table dined
With demons
On adjacent sides
Light and shade paraded gaily
Nature’s way in braided twine
Autumn haze then faded
As did cautious gaze of space and time
This lawless state was all ablaze with ways to brave my dormant phase
In all my days
Had ne’er felt so divine
As in the wake of hazing Λlumni

Labyrinthine maze aside
This habitat seemed spacious site
Tapping into playful side
My vital signs then stabilized
Snapping stack of cable ties
I favoured brave

Made my way back rapidly
To aptly claim my famous prize

Angels at my table dined
With demons
On adjacent sides
Light and shade paraded gaily
Nature’s way in braided twine
Autumn haze then faded
As did cautious gaze of space and time
This lawless state was all ablaze with ways to brave my dormant phase
In all my days
Had ne’er felt so divine
As in the wake of hazing Λlumni
