(10/30) Insomnia: Act IV

The prompt for day 10 over at NaPoWriMo: write a poem of simultaneity in which multiple things are happening at once.


Moonlight crawls

up the wall;

settling of the house,

a macabre soundtrack.

Incessant whirling of

a refrigerator motor;

buzz saw to the brain.

The thunderous beating of my heart

burst through muscle and bone

like Ripley’s Nemesis.

Eyeballs flirt with

every shadow movement;

sight now a whore.

Skin, the temperature of an

August night in DC;

I feel myself sticking to the bed,

perspiration has become glue.

The ceiling looks down at me;

I swear it is laughing.
