Anthony Salandy

Linguistic Malfeasance

Assumptive language
Consumes new tonal shifts
As cacophonous melancholia
Overcomes simple communication

Where labels conquer tepid minds
And dance paced waltzes
Through broken minds
Just waiting to disturb

Obsessive compulsions
Beyond sane infatuation
Or delirium derived
From verbalizations bastardized

And concentrated in weakening grip,
But new worlds transcend bodily co-presence
Where transcendental are experiences
Consumed like failing language

Overcome by malfeasance linguistic.
