This Ancient Sickness


“We have always made mistakes, but the greatest mistakes are the poems we have written.”

— Tristan Tzara






this ancient sickness came

communicated by thinking:


feeding off of this negative energy


of my caffeine overdose I feel


soft shadows pinching me


& furious with myself


& the shadows


eye try to


settle it 


& eye
