from a fitful sleep at two pm, i stumble through the door, my head awhirl and styrofoam hand; orange juice runs deliberately down my chin, quite fascinated by the curves and the bumps on my skin: mixed up, fumble for a cigarette in filthy clothes, watching the flame dance about like a nijinsky styled overture.

the thin breeze threatened to freeze, i scanning the nearby forest for a sign of unease; a bird unknown to even my own trained eye ghosts on silent wings to the furthest reaches, a place i'll never venture, so i dream of quiet beaches, the waves lapping contentedly at rocks unconcerned, a fragrance of brine and vapor, rising new.

unheard, he creeps, a hunter in the afternoon pierced through with trails of light; a muted whisper then my cigarette falls unfinished: i live in the ocean, bleeding cobalt blue, dreaming.
