8hz

wake up sleepy head

forget the past fifteen years

today is the day

fear creeps up my spine

the sense of being followed

from each dark corner

three pills twice a day
i cant remember your face
i guess i dont mind

some minutes later
i notice i’m on fire
the rain never comes

on the radio

you struggle reading adverts

wordplay falling flat

a rain-drenched rooftop
my social life has suffered
working as a spy

a huge chimera

part wolf, part wasp, part human

i’ve named him Eric

you see yourself there

you don’t know how you got there

and yet there you are

i started typing
and kept going and going
until my hands bled

i’m in a sitcom

i’m swimming in the harbour

my limbs lose function

a huge chimera

part wolf, part wasp, part human

i’ve named him Eric

air leaks from the room

i reach out to touch your hand

my arm halts, frozen

credit me in the liver
