i congeal on this bed

i swim in my head

::driftwords - my bloated arms
are wrapped around
once again i am a lotus
focus fading in and out
and as skyward light
becomes pronounced
announced by my drowning wake::

i congeal on this bed

i swim in my head

i congeal on this bed

night still wake

why so cold? of course, my favorite segment is that beginning in the ":" and ending in the ":"

A labyrinthine tale of God.

it has a nice feel to it like a something sung with one instrument. the imagery-visual- is uniquely yours, and i now recognize the style to be yours.

Ah, Zen and the Art of Poetry Writing, perhaps? I love it when writers put in the little side comments. Reminds me of my thought process -- focused on one thing, with the occasional flash of thought on the rim. The words you use here complement the form excellently, as well.

What can I say? I love the feeling of this poem. It keeps making me want to experience the scene being played out, even if it's not a happy one.

And of course "I congeal on this bed" has to be one of the best first lines I've seen in awhile.

Wonderfully done.
