Tranquility & Chaos
by Adam Valdez

Tranquility; that four-syllable sound
With so much bliss
Tranquility is peppermint breath
Blue skies, cooing birds, and the toss of a womanís hair
I live for the peace of mind
Yet, Iím ashamed to say, Chaos seems more pleasing
Lust, Greed, and Entropy, all wonderful things!
The crashing of plates, the smog filled skies
The taste of alcohol on the lips, how delightfully delicious
Tranquility and Chaos my two favorite girlfriends
Iím just glad that theyíll never be in the same room together ...
