Night Stings


Some nights the blood

Won’t work and the heart

Feels like there’s only

Half a tick of petrol left.

Sleep goes cold

And in the afterlife encounters

Monsters spiked with

Deep-sea electric.

Dawn ripens the above

Into perfect symmetry

Again. A quiet window seat,

Disturbed only by the sun.
