Poetry from the 3:15 Experiment 2010: August 2 Night Terror

September 13, 2010


Poetry from the 3:15 Experiment
August 2, 2010 home

The night terror tonight
took the shape of my husband
& hid under the bed

until he died a dramatic death
his arm up & reaching frantically
as if drowning & counting down

with my head on his chest
I pondered which was real
what was real

perhaps this was the evil one
& the good twin had gone down
like a sinking ship?

how did I know the feet
rubbing mine were truly
doing so with love?

I didn’t know I decide
I didn’t really know anything
except I needed to go back to sleep.

I’ve participated in the 3:15 Experiment since 2001. As a participant, I get up every night I can at 3:15am to write. Hundreds of poets all over the world this year did the same; many of them are now transcribing their nightly scribbles and will then post on the site.

Most Mondays since I started blogging November 2007 I post poetry here. For more poetry, catch a ride on the Monday Poetry Train.
