A Dream (Hell, It’s a Nightmare)

Screen-Shot-2017-12-26-at-10.06.21-AM

 

I glaze into her eyes, purple haze, smoking black;

She shows her teeth

(They’re clean,

Mine aren’t).

 

She crosses her eyes to look at me, making her squint;

She tries to foresee

(But can’t very far

Beyond me).

 

I say dumb sounds like, “I’ll stay or go away”;

She rattles her brains,

(Which rattles me)

And sends me away.

 

I’ve gone insane and can only babble dripping words;

She has deaf ears

(Which hear sounds

But can’t see).

 

My eyes become misty: they’re raining inside my head;

(I wander about,

Lost for awhile)

And then I wake up.

 

(written in 1967)
