Night Terror Poem– 3:15 Experiment August 14, 2002

March 3, 2008

Beware to those these circus dreams

comets slipping away like

like clouds like fog like sun

and that was at first that

bizarre night terror–it is even

further cobwebby the ivy grows in the

garden of memory the lawn chair even

and the bird bath gone

There was something in the air

like narrow puzzle pieces

they glowed orange neon they shimmered

they floated suspended in the air

like a huge school of minnows or plankton

you can imagine my alarm my fear

because yes they did not belong

here floating in the air of

my bedroom but what can you do

about it

    I love what you do with words. I love how you command them, make them do your bidding. This is fantastic. I had to read it more than once outloud just because I couldn’t get enough.

    ‘There was something in the air
    like narrow puzzle pieces’

    I love these lines, and how they become even more bizarre, still hanging in the air. Wonderful, Artpredator.
