Joys of Madness by Stephen Jarrell Williams

Staying up all night painting
the enamel ceiling dark hues of blue
yellow stars and white lightning

dunking fries in catsup
drinking Pepsi
chewing ice

knowing the whole world is
sleeping on its back
kicking at the universal dream

night shadows on soft skin
music playing in another room

lying quiet
holding on
holding on
to the joys of madness.
