other written masterpiece

there is this
this is
the last place
or so it feels
tipping my gaze
over the edge
& into it
greys
predominate
here & I
grow asthmatic
or
I grow fear
like tiny
mushrooms
in my lungs
upon arriving
here & I
graze
myself everywhere
struggling to
get out
of emptiness
get fulfilment
in to me
so far in
history
I’ve barely gotten
out alive
scraped & naked
breasts & thighs
bruised
unconsciously
shivering in thin sun
as I stagger
home once
more

where is my
transformation?
I grew faith
where I had none
& still the grey
abyss will come
&
damn me
with complete
& perfect
negation;
revelation of
lumpy truths
under fear’s carpet;

christ I’m
not cleaning
that shit up
right now

not after
what I’ve just
been through;
I turn over

&
spoon the wall
(it doesn’t
give &
doesn’t fall)
& the knowledge
that this will
come again
in it’s own time
crawls sideways
into bed &
holds me hard
from behind
