Favorite Quote:
So it goes. --Kurt Vonnegut


In my corner I sit
curl up
Tears run
stream
slide
Down my face
A hornet’s nest fights crazy in my head
I fight to catch my breath
Cannot stop hyperventilating
As the apathetic fluorescents gaze
Down upon my fetal form
With the blankness of catatonia.
I view the world through shimmering
blurry
glassy
Eyes
Watch the nauseating

cadaverous

crawling
Green painted walls
Breathe like a living organism

Creature

Beast
I shrink

Melt

Disappear
Farther into the corner
Draw my knees tighter
Around my shaking

Sobbing

Wretched
Form and rock
Back and forth
Back and forth
Back and forth.
I eye the window

The metal hole
Barred with icy slats
Can only see shafts

Shards

Pieces
Of greasy Green Bay
Want to run up to it
And throw a chair through
The chilly glass
Shatter
smash
destroy
It
Reduce it to a million
Piercing diamonds
Run through it
Run away
But I do not do it.
