Omnipotent Synesthesia

one sense triggers another, and so they create


silky songs

from a young tailor

that sound smooth and strong

and caress like a savior-


the poet’s false bait - making art so unlike the others,


its glimmer smells medicinal

as the musician’s instrument

reflects truths unconditional

and made lovely scents disorient


so words bounce around like rubber. The artist ate


continuous crescendos

that tasted so sweet

because when concluded

made delicious treats


of lies at a terrific rate, his poems let him smell color


that pulled at his hand

with some lovely aroma

And his one-man band

formed a perfumed coma


but his senses couldn’t recover so his senses turned hate


into decadent ensembles

that revealed red confusion

and the taste of blood

let nonsensical fusions


conduct the final symphony

and destroy - death by entropy
