Blue Midnight

(From Dissociative Fugue #2)

“I was the victim of a series of accidents.”

— Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

Television, at low doses

around midnight

& it is only my heart.

I worry.

I am.

The shadow people are not something new.

Bubbling slowly,

the movie’s become extremely oblique.

I felt I had to see this.

How do I take it?

I wonder.

Is this – knowing my body?

My body, it feels that very vein.

& then a movement – no –

another attempt to get up

& everytime I 2nd – guess

will you see through this?
