Random Poem:

through hole-punched sleep...

through hole-punched sleep
are those knee-deep dreams
and the sheets that can't
hold scavenger feet
and my hot-red eyes opened
and my shot heart tossed
and the bed that i made
feels dead and looks wrong
"turnabout," my dream says
"is goddamned fair play"
as it lingers in spirals
and fucks up my day
