SHRUNKEN SKULL

SHRUNKEN SKULL

THE FATUOUS HOURS BETWEEN 1 AND 4 AM

HAUNT MY ACHING BRAIN AWAKE.

SCOOPED OUT MIND AND STUFFED BACK

WILLY NILLY INSIDE A SHRUNKEN SKULL.

A NOODLE NOGGIN.

 

THE FUZZ OF ALCOHOL AND PAINKILLERS,

UPSET MY STOMACH.

MAKE ME THROW UP :

LUCID TORTUOUS DREAMS!

AWAKE AND BOLDLY CRUMBLING…

 

THE SQUEEZE OF MY MIND,

EVISCERATES MY SOUL.

I TREMBLE AT YOUR ABYSS,

THE VACUUM OF YOUR SPACE.

I TRY TO FILL IT.

 

NOTHING FILLS IT,

NOTHING CAN FILL IT,

I HAVE TO OCCUPY

LIKE A PENITENT PILGRIM…

ON MY KNEES.

 

DALE ‘M’
