Musings of a mind that has altogether left the building.

by Andrea Colton

Can it hurt
anymore?
These angry fists
all full of lungs
drummed out a beat---

breath
squeeze
breath
squeeze---

a tug of war with
wills and will nots

A poison mouth
to bite from the inside
out

and all that was heard
teeth ripping
from this skull
ripping out this
heart.

Blanketed half-life limbs
melt one into
another. The birds are long gone
by now. Sodden cracked out floors

are all that's left. A God

that ran away from me-
holding out toes
hips
and chestful of lies-
And now I
lay

forgotten.
This collapsing throat.
A sight to
leave children
wringing their hands.



The walls are tired
of me
lately.

Author's Note: Recent events have caused me to realize that I'm here, and there's nothing I can do about it. So I better figure out a way to survive, because it's obviously not time for me to check out.

Sounds like a plan. Great write, too.

Can it hurt anymore? These angry fists all full of lungs drummed out a beat- Oh yeah, I feel that beat!
