Downward Drops

some random
thoughts creep in
so frightful
,

most sit upright in sheets n’ cast
that blank slate, checkmate
fuck-off stare,

grey n’ bland as silicon high-rise
elevator chit-chat and the
bla bla blahhs all spiral
down to furnace
basement.

i’d rather have a scare
rip each hair from
my clammy
body,

and slice flesh clean thru
to gummy marrow, toothpick
chippin’ away
at bone

than have it
leave me alone
.

in truth, i’d rather succumb to own
heart’s glumness then mumble
off into death’s hummin’
numbness.
