Fear

 

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.
