Faithless Wraiths-Max Meunier/Dissociative Void


by eluding slumber

on this

the eve of our undoing


a queendom

once as mighty

as the matriarchal moon


teemed with warmth


now reduced

to shards

of lucid shame


poring over

penned epiphanies

of deconstructing


torrid tales

torn into pieces

taking flight

as footsteps fall


fleeing from

this strangest feeling

folding into

flawed expression


told by victors

sold to loss


pictures steeped

in surface tensions

depths of our

sustained dissent


situated on a slab

of drab somatic sediment

a case of faithless



on the urgency

of slow submersion


there is no function

left to serve

no faction

fraught with fervor


fading into fields

of fescue

overtaking structures stoic

tucked away

’til all the hands

of time

release their souls

[Max states: “I write about the things going on in my life. I am a feminist, humanist, cat loving musician bound by whimsy and the incessant analysis of hyper-vigilant observations.  I am obsessed with words and rhythmically woven wordplay.” We are honored to have him as a member of our tribe.]

  1. Max you are truly a master. You are one of my poetry heroes. I absolutely adore your vocabulary. Everything about your poetry is precise, rhyme and meter and flow. An incredible poem my friend.

    1. You are far too kind to me! I hold you in the same regard. I feel like we share some fundamental aspects of each other’s existence to a very distinct degree, as the ways in which your work affects me strikes a hidden nerve. And your kindness is always humbling. Thank you for everything.
