awake. delicious monster. listening to the night snore. sweating asterisks.


laugh. stale villain. dancing to the weep of darkness. trembling parenthesis.


speak. raw child. learning to walk. on the rippling breath of circumstance. kicking commas.

fractions of god. perspire between her legs.

( red )

sleep. spoiled outcast. on the husk of memory. taken by choices. in a frenzy of question marks.

the scowl of contrition. broken worlds blossoming under her tongue. dense like the angles on a square. broad as the math that determines. how far I've wandered.

look. find them. filthy mirrors. that swallow the day. rusting scales. that weigh what is missing.

simple pin pricks. dull needles. knotted threads. pull on the holes. not trying to close them. but only attempting to make them smaller.

she is.

you were. remember.

the victim. the villain. the voice. the observer. watching the world sleep. a fortunate case of insomnia.
