  • It crawls.

    Burrowing into my earth

    With a restless spirit.

    Here and there,

    Never still.


    Biding time.

    It assumes

    Physical form.

    Bumps and lumps

    Sometimes seen,

    Sometimes not

    Shadows on screens

    Smears on glass


    but present.


    A theocracy

    led by an

    unruly god.


    I am.

    A hollowed pit

    Filled with pain

    Ready to fall

    In abject surrender
