A Poem by Adam Levon Brown

Agoraphobic Anarchy

Catastrophic calamity
on a downward spiral

Obliterating the empty
bags of chicken Ramen

A whirlwind of decadence
at the foot of the stairs

Waiting to swallow me whole

Thousands of fire ants
scattering across
the skin on my legs

begging for scraps
in the abysmal prison
that my psyche created for me

No way out,
the door is sealed shut

No way in,
there is nothing but
a hollow ringing

I am left to teeter
on the brink of insatiable
appetites that have long
been out of my control

  1. This place is absolutely gorgeous, beautiful and stunning. Even though a few halls are equally appealing and fascinating in their decor, food and aesthetics, I'm tempted to still give venues in Houston some slight edge.
