Ars Poetica

To lay in the dark,

without purpose or

prospect,

is to seal one’s own will

and to welcome decay.

The burning sensation

of boredom, which

squirms and burrows

in one’s skull is the precursor

to madness.

Yet, if one stops for a moment,

he can see his

slim and pasty fingers

flick and jitter and

ache and crave

the passage of thought.

The Doctor

I don’t recall how I got here, but there are too many needles in this peeling white room.

 

I just woke up… I can’t feel my face or my left leg.

 

The doctor’s been gone for a while, and I can smell blood.

 

I’m so tired. I think I’ll go to sleep.
