Contemplations

[PALIMPSEST]



A bridge for sleepwalkers
a reality for lucid dreamers
forgetting how to recognize
an emotion
waking up betrays
what your hidden brain takes
a lifetime to rectify






Houdini in a Pinch
through a trapdoor or false wall
I escaped the horror of my life
constantly fearing confrontation
of a past best sealed in a box
tossed into the river
unable to break free in a pocket of air
or reappear behind a curtain
I vanish like those troubled teens
who don't have their shit together
who cannot pull the right card free.
