STENOSIS


Today started out out burning RED with streaks of BLACK and then it faded to WHITE.
That’s when the morphine kicked in.
White noise fills my ears.  White light burns my eyes. White heat melts my bones.
I wanted to scream. I had no mouth.
PANIC.

Consider love.
Blood-red candy.
It is abstract, an artifact, not a fact.

Tomorrow will start burning RED with streaks of BLACK and then it will fade to WHITE.
Broken glass shreds unseen flesh, bleeding inside. Synapses burst with empty thoughts.
The film spins noisy in the reel. The screen is blank and BLINDING. The audience grows uneasy.
CATATONIA

You’ll die alone.
Like everyone
a maggot in the Interzone.

The yellow dream is turning brown, writhing, twisting, knotted, rotting, and lost.
Words hang suspended like spit on dental floss.
You can’t wake up.
EMBRACE YOUR LIFE

Standing up straight takes my breath away.
Oh well.

It’s Christmas, again.
It came fast, this year.
