Desktop Horizens

Turn it all off
and cover the digital clock with a scarf
I don't want no time
no light
cracks on the floor
slits of yesterdays fits
splayed across the-

Turn it all off
swollen bellies on soft cloth
men without faces mouth
invisible places
to go to in the dark
absent from time and
the humming of the desktop
Turn it all off and
cover your eyes with this scarf

A very lovely poem indeed. However what I got from it contradicts that I found it on a website.

Thanks so much. It's not my strongest piece, but I appreciate the recognition.
