soporific torpor


a blanket of illusional safety brings out the gay and nervous laughter, the giddy lightness of being, the freeing of many anxious birds from my chest...slap. crashes down by the ignorant flick of a haughty wrist and i'm reminded that i still am vapid, of air. metal bitter. trapped behind glass, perturbed and hideous. finished.

The birds fly headlong into the interior perimeter of the display bottle, shake off the headache and the formaldehyde stupor, and fly spirals around the body, like a vortex of black sand, and the brush of the feathers against the skin almost brings back the memory of being a living thing, a walking speaking beast with a name and a bed and a presence beyond the endless gawking of bored passerby. Almost.
