Moonlit Pieces

I’ve memorized how poppies dance in my blood every midnight,
Til I turn into a pale moonlight
A stasis in the night, cloudy eyelids shut

Yesterday was the first time I rode an ambulance alone with her on a stretcher, I was inside but it felt like I wasn't there, I felt like I lost my other senses and my face was empty. All I heard and felt were the wallops of siren piercing my whole being, as if there were …


Yesterday, burglars attacked me snuck in through my navel slithered through the gaps under the door of my mind tromped over and intruded my body a heist of calm state and innocence captured my breath, tamed my soul ruptured my walls and windows, cracks turned into sinkholes aggressively pulling out my innards my hefty veins intermittently becoming …
