This must be the place

At my wake i dream,
ghost about and try
as i might, make only

minimal impact. I repeat
the same tasks over,
more frantic with each

attempt. When i
speak, words stillborn
in my throat choke

at cords and die
without proper

The people i meet barely
acknowledge my presence.
They brook no walls nor

gravity nor premise. Mother,
wife, lover, or more, at once, a
procession of enemies i've kept

close to every other person i have
not met, yet, mutable
all, as i am deliberate

and vague. They have me only
in so far they exist
in my head. I

am no cause for effect
and it is always getting
late and i forget and i forget

that. And i dream i dream i go
back to bed and fall
and jolt and shake

my shackles reflexing
my own knee
jerk against my self in stead.
