A poem

Familiar faces,

black ball eyes

no escape.

Clothes, a uniform

sewn to my skin.

Arch enemy up top,

walking without movement.

Shapes becoming sounds,

manic sweat sensations

need help.


An entity unknown,

its presence is felt.

Large and small,

everything at once.

Up top she turns,

her mouth erupts

arcadian light.

I flinch and soil,

silent laughter

they know what they're after

need help.


One by one,

they all stand and begin.

I know where I am,

too little too late.

I choke on my scream,

and my sweat becomes green.

Close my eyes,

until I wake.
