Dark Morning

my headache was instant upon waking
maybe even part of a dream
which followed me from restless sleep
attached to my brain like a demonic parasite
it makes the coffee bitter
and numbs my face
which feels like melting wax
and is incapable of even a semblance of expression
I sit quite still and wait for the pills
(from the shattered child-proof bottle)
to work their poison on the intruder
drying its pulsing mass to a husk
that the dawn’s fresh air can blow
to the back of my mind
and allow my shuttered eyes
to open in the filtered sunlight of my kitchen
eventually

Dark Morning
