8hz

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

rushing toward me

it’s so loud my eardrums burst

i wake in a sweat

air leaks from the room

i reach out to touch your hand

my arm halts, frozen

she climbs the gutter

a huge knife between her teeth

someone has to pay

she tears down the walls

an insatiable hunger

the cityscape looms

the vile creature writhes

a limbless mass of wet flesh

convulses and spits

it was past midnight
the sky filled with UFOs
i’d lost my camera

the water wont stop

despite how i turn the taps

i found it like this

mankind is long gone
tree roots tear through the pavement
reclaiming the street

the vile creature writhes

a limbless mass of wet flesh

convulses and spits

on the radio

you struggle reading adverts

wordplay falling flat

air leaks from the room

i reach out to touch your hand

my arm halts, frozen

make it stop make it stop
