“Landslide” by Amanda McLeod



rules caught in the landslide

swept away in madness and diamond

filled rocks


reason is an unmarked map

the unfamiliar wild envelops me


I am lost in chaos theory


there is no light on the

windowsill to guide me home


I will not be entombed in this

bottomless dark


I take my soul and tear it into

a million tiny crumbs of ethereal


each step a dropped morsel

a trail of spiritual stars to mark

where I’ve been,  so that

I never go back
