Beholder of the eye

Behold the ghoulish beauty,
the elegance we find
in everyday places:

         tired rioters
holding each other up, exhaustion
exhumed from discarded weapons
of mass distrust;

         the joyful egg
bounding through a flower bed
with the crack
of a breeze winding it forward;

         the hungry musician
ensnaring a wheelbarrow, merely
a mistaken muse
inspiring labored hymns;

         and me – I
sprint to a parking meter, a wild
armed mime escaping
from a box only I can see.

Written for BrewNSpew Cafe weekly prompt “ghoulish” – visit and congratulate Eugenia on 4,000 followers!

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
