something lurid

something lurid

{06.20.13}

 

I foreheard the music

in a dream, synthesized

from drug use and loneliness

 

the notes, long and drawn

upon wings in slow motion

a faded tale of mystic flight

 

occasionally, they dropped

to a register guttural

and triggered something lurid

 

and I awoke to a place

where echoes and resonance

completely drowned the original attack
