imagine then a simple future / reflected on as many times before / till light begins to shiver it to bits
time stops or trips and you / run madly just to halt the monologue / of variations and alternatives
silence puts a hand up in the back / the light goes dark or so it would appear / awareness stiffens catatonic and inert
deflecting fantasies of black detail / you want to fight the shrinking edge / that holds you up against your will
but why is here and what is where / perception of perception blurs in time / with nowhere feelings lost beside restricted dreams
and drifting downward counting out / unequal turns of night and day you wonder still / if you must drown or simply pray
