I'm numb, as though of hemlock I had drunk.
Buttery, blissful Beethoven fuzzed up
White and loud, overtaking; takeaway
Margherita pizza on the carpet:
the black forest growing movie popcorn
crunching beneath my feet, my joints crumble.
Chewing in the jaw's ache; even asleep
We partake in the becoming of dusk--
In the world, we will never be asleep.
