  • It crawls.

    Burrowing into my earth

    With a restless spirit.

    Here and there,

    Never still.

    Anticipating.

    Biding time.

    It assumes

    Physical form.

    Bumps and lumps

    Sometimes seen,

    Sometimes not

    Shadows on screens

    Smears on glass

    Invisible,

    but present.

    Omnipotent.

    A theocracy

    led by an

    unruly god.

    Weary,

    I am.

    A hollowed pit

    Filled with pain

    Ready to fall

    In abject surrender
