Helios Grimm

 

by Harris Coverley

 

 

eyelids torn like wet toilet paper

the awakening an explosion

the trees outside with those branches

black veins against the dirt blue sky

pulsing hard

throbbing with the blood of the scrub

the whole world silently screaming

firstly my name,

and then something like:

hey, I’m here . . .

hey, I’m here . . .

hey, I’m here . . .

a billion times in two seconds

before I close my eyes

and retreat back to the other place.

 

some dreams are just the day

wearing a mask of dark light.
