MonsterMind

Melbourne-Think-Soda
men, made of clay, stand watch
and i walk
or run
or fly

jump off this skyscraper
to land
numb ~
broken and intact
while the bomb is still
tick
tick
tick-ing

i am inside, not out
(didn’t i just leave?)
where no one knows the way
where my voice is nonexistent
and i scream;
incapable ~
only to draw grey clay looks
seasoned with grey clay smirks
while i
run in circles (tick tick tick)
round
round
rOund
succumb to painted windows
finally
find (my fear) the roof exit
and jump
again – eager
to leave the madhouse behind

please, just this once.
please. please…

beep
beep beep
beep beep

i wake in cold sweat
and find
this monstrous mind
at ease

…until i dream again.

  1. Very frightening progression. The round, round, round definitely puts the reader right inside the dream with you. I hope somehow you find a way to shake this repeating dream….
