ZAPPED DREAM
(8/21/15)


faces
shifted

voices
screamed

flailing arms
filled
the sky

then just
when
the crowded chaos
seemed
to settle

a new
cacophony
would erupt

more bodies
would press in
upon me

I felt
hopeless

this was
my hell

I awake
to lightning

thunder

gusting winds
driving rain
against
the windows

but
at least
I am
alone

so I
turn on
the light
to enjoy
my stormy
isolation

sleepless
but free
from that nightmare
multitude
