How I Feel Sometimes

a soiled sack of shards of shattered ******* and crusty crumbs of dirty icicle
grinding slowly like a compoung fracture
pain sparking dully, liek the firing of a derange synapse
babbling desperate nonsense in a forgotten code to nobody at all
a dying lightbulb flicking and flashing in an airless closet in the back of a forgotten guestroom
the light flickering on the torn flap of an old shoe box
where a doll's eye lies, staring, between a plastic piece from a lost board game
and the flaccid carcass of a perforated bicycle inner tube
while a cheap box fan with only two blades
stirs the fetid, reeking exhalations
into a tepid miasma
of stifling, sticky, stinking swampmuck
that sucks skeletons dry then chews the bones
just to have something to eat
the bones, of course, are its own
