Drunken and distraught,

wide awake,

teetering off sanity’s pave

The hard liquor bottle turns clear

Nearing emptiness, of soul and rocks

Pain that lingers

Anew with the last chug

Icy floor, face down drowning in tears and sweat,

Bruised and broken

Bloodied by a fist so mighty and raw

Strangled by a mute reality

A reverse of a parallel universe

A past irreversible

Fast rewind to right before the muscle tension

Before the limb landed

Before the rumble between two stars

The explosion of the expelled now dead star

Choking off the missed lanes

Wrong turns,

Noosed in staring down at a pool of regret

Compressed airways,

Withering breath,

Twitching feet,

Circling ’round a live cemetery ,

Momentary respite,

a note slips from the grip

As she finds release
