and very suddenly

on a whim

.            eyes blind

I packed my mind

and s a i l e d

outside   myself

for a day

or two,

a plan


only when I

.           came back

very s u d d e n l y

I couldn’t





so I

built an army

with my    thoughts

but they


in the dark

and very s u d d e n l y

I lost my breath

out there


for a while

I          screamed at nothingness

then for a while I

swallowed it


and after a while


got back in

but I


out of matches


so now I flounder,

.                 only sometimes

until my eyes adjust

until there are

q u i e t

precious  o u t l i n e s

in the dim .
