Slowly in

Photo by Brooke Shaden


                 Here I’m in the doubt/dare/bite chair
unhappy moments…, TV on the ceiling,
courteous “what channel?”,
“please, music” and ‘thanks’.

Expectation time long….longer..
askew little art on the wall
in the rusty as if sanguinary frame

Guest house? move closer...
the furry pet passed by in the hurry…
time? smell the flowers
pulled in…the crimson scent/sense

found in the air…which way?
gone by wind…the cup, the pet, the saucer
steady rotating at the periphery….

notice vent blades approaching
oh, silver tassels…
Grab one!…Bite on!...Done!
…………………………………

Nightmare catch/cage better.

  6. I thought of Alice in Wonderland and the endless change of scenes -
    You've captured the beauty of the picture and the horror of nightmares.

    I went in a different direction - I played here:

  17. What a wonderful tumble down of words...for some reason it transported me to a dentist chair...and the thoughts that pour out as you have nothing to do but gaze at the ceiling
