ALL I WANT IS TO SLEEP DELIRIUM

i swallow eight while time
tells me, “ha ha”
i’m so miserable with my pillow
and my heart thumps like an
elephant released into the wild
after nine years oh my my,
the white coat says go! so here
i go without a net — my feet
bleed so my eyes bulge
and my brain screams
‘i’m lost in delirium’
a clock says, “nine”
my tongue so dry dancing
upon dead minds — my heart; oh!
dancing everywhere explodes!
maiming souls and blinds
whatever i was before today
i’m so numb /600 lb gorilla
in my room\ so here we go
sleeping within delirium
and i know i’m on my own
so here we go again
and so i try till something
breaks within my soul
‘ten’ strikes the clock
and i’m done — very well
and now i sleep to begin again
in the morning i’m so dead
