Lava Lamp

A clutter, a clash.
Red and clear oil coat
the floor as timeless
elements shatter memories
from the 1960s. Broken glass
causing piercing pains
on soft, bare feet.
Slipping and sweeping up the mess
by the ancient record player
that misses several beats.
Distorted sounds
smashing, crushing—
silence, inner peace.
