Sofa Surfer

Can I sleep on your couch in my clothes? with a DVD playing, repeating the credits all over again,
smell the cigarette ash tray, the whiskey, the plate from you dinner, not hungry, I drink for the pain,
watching street shadows, blinds on the windows, a cobweb, not sleeping, not blinking, I’m going insane,
in the dark, my eyes open, it’s darker inside, must contain, must refrain from the struggling signs,
in my mind there’s a picture, an image, it grows with each evening, in fear of the day, ..and the night,
on your couch, just for now, like a cat in a box, in the dark, I am frightened but safe and unharmed.
