I Command the Accent of the Wind

Whisper to me
In between mouthfuls
Of irate sighs
Oh world

I command the accent
Of the wind
Tribal marks
On my thoughts
Berthing like a ship
Of pirates

My mind
Has become delusional
Out of my daily tussles
Encroaching on sanguine conversations
With the mediocrity
Of laws

I hate my reality
When everything mocks at me
From the state made laws
To my grumbling stomach

All stirring the rough waters
Of my mind
