a short green blanket

by jhon baker

susurrous inharmonious voices playing
on in our heads obfuscating true thought.
no alleviation but pressing pressing pressing and
drinking to augment the medication;

an ill-advised admixture.

sudden, jarring, unholy loud; eyes open
heart thump-ump, thump-ump
really going going going
fear sweat wetting hair and night clothes

body shivers from light breezes.

light low.
powder burns on fingers,
feet cold and uncovered.

a short green blanket.
