    thru blue bedroom, a chair

    falls across bedspread

    spins along random floor

    i wander up wall, hang

    suspended from light bulb


    phone rings we speak into

    plastic wire did you know

    how dizzy i am i am i am

    in bathroom blushing curtains

    razor blades near sink

    now polishing scarred

    vanity table, cut in my arm

    how white!


    ahhh furnishedbluebedroom

    insides of existentialessay



    caja caja caja

    something hiding important

    under coils in back of brain

    only this makes me happy

    insects busy night&day

    i hear them.
