God called in sick today,
and the sky is dancing.
People walked hand in hand
singing in tune with the damned.

Running without stories
‘this is what tragedy feels like’
dead is the new alive
but misery loves company.

Racing with the devil
one doesn't dare stop against
the lord of the damned
he laughs against the concrete.

Can one play with madness
as they dance on clouds of mind?
Heavens a lie when butterflies are flying in hurricanes
And God takes a day off.

Wasted time throwing rocks at stars
souls refuse their eternal rest
they drink a cup of galaxy for breakfast
hymn of the shameless.

Obsession is an ugly word.
When dead becomes the new alive
the devil walks the earth
and God takes a day off work.
From my favorite place to get prompts when I encounter writers block, #343 'God called in sick today'. I had a bit of fun, wondering what could make sense and what wouldn't, and just really enjoyed writing this piece.

Please let me know what you think.

Really evocative! I didn't quite understand what the deal was with the devil "laughing against the concrete" but I love the flow of this piece, and so much of the imagery. I like the combination of the subtle horror and strange jubilation. It questions and challenges, and that's really awesome! Great poetry!
