‘Nancy!’

Scanning the landscape,
she wonders, ‘what mess can
I create?

I could casually kick up
chaos and clutter or muck up
and mock a clean white slate

Tangles and terror I
draw from thin air, order
erodes away

When I am done and
I’ve had all my fun
–dead calm–
I leave in my wake!’

pills pills pills

into the folds I go
crumbling back to black oblivion

befogged fortress becomes clearer still
I am at home here

curtailed, the light gives way
to leather-thick darkness

nightly I arrest myself
my sleep second only to death.

Such high hopes for a fat haul

but what should that cherub drag

back to shore but stiff-limbed 

driftwood caught in his creel.

bleating

weathered i recoil in terror
beneath the leather lash of the whip
black sheep, black sheep
have you any wool?

They made to
make seem
my every
action
dangerous

Endeavored
to render
me down to a waned and
wanted man
before I
even knew
‘What for?’

i am a

foreign

shore

he washes

onto not

often

for he sees

me

as

something of a

delicacy.
