*


Fellowship swimming 
in a den with old
couches, scratchy
on my painted toes.
A sole bag beside me
on grey carpet…
been living out 
of bags and boxes
far too long. 
Everything
disassembled, 
s c a t t e r e d
in the winds of time
changing. Waiting,
always waiting,
for history to disperse
like exhaust fumes,
looking for a future
across a bridge
obscured by rain.

*heavy sleep*

Riding on the brink
of sleep, heavy headed
whispers press
against my skull
like a vice,

straining to swallow
the birdsong
and voices
of a bleach white
morning —coffee too hot
but not strong enough,

there are pills to pick you up
pills to put you down,
but is there something
to take for monotony,
for halfway in between
halfway under water?

All this smoke
those car horns,
they shake the afternoon
colours into life,
kaleidoscopic
and devastating
and pitiful.
