Chaos Dance
by Amy Zoellers 

The firmament

too thick with the spirits of the dead

tore in the pull of wayward asteroids

bringing a change in the weather.


Souls merged by millions

denser, denser

fusing explosive,

whistling to the ground as fireballs.

Fire falls,

gashing the earth on contact.


This is the chaos part of the dance.

Dance chaotic, go!

And the world does so.


But I in my cabin,

having long danced my chaos

so boldly in secret,

continue in lyric and stillness,

locked in the fugue of my

tranquil dance, glorying

as the world splits, burning.

  1. I love the energy and the beauty of this poem – “Dance chaotic, go!” – what an image – what an invitation to join in some collective hysteria.

  2. afstewart says:

    A superb poem.

  3. I love where you took this. Full of dark energy, brimming with music.
