2020-09-09 – Chalk Dust

i vent to dusty end
of a vacuum
hose,

it sucks and slurps and
i’m the monkey’s
paw..

in immortal trance,
spinning silly,

salt crusted, dancing
someone better’s
steps

over regrets of passed out
parents in their grim
tailor’s threads,

brain melts down to steaming
puddle in spite of
the bed’s deep
cold.

++++

fine powder chalks
a chapped
nose
,

next sneeze, the room’s
a snow globe
.
