– woke up to twisted blankets
a missing sock
sweat sticky on my neck, behind my knees

– dreamt violent dreams of crushed bones, severed limbs
big bears and oversized birds

– drive away, escape bleeding
clutching your own heart, arm curled up to your chest

– I’ll stand in the blood, the broken glass,
hair and spit and fear left on the floor

finding the rage, the violence I can’t know in conciousness

– here, dreamland alive with bold unapology
