Grand Mal

Buzzsaw sensation
right temple all
of a sudden

Forthcoming power
surge I in fear of
spin sideways

away from the sink
full of dirty
dishes peel off

the glasses
the sinkhole of my
eye sockets

*

White wisps rising
from the drier vent

dark water leaping
in the floor drain

Stable can still
same black hole

*

Divided into phases
the grand mal
seizure

repeats the lunar
calendar beat
for beat

lost consciousness
rhythmic contractions

Signs and symptoms
include a scream

*

Theo's tantrum also
called a fit
completely unhinged

the Mega Blocks
he's cramming

in clatter out

of his tiny trash
compactor

Impossible
outrage

as if life unending
were a thing

back to issue


Loooading...
