by K.H. Ackroyd

Peeling, peeling ever peeling, your tattered sickness has me reeling.

Look quick, Did you see?

I think that woman is looking at me?

Can't you see her, she's just right there, why I see my face reflected in her hair


Hush now, do you hear?

Oh have no fear.

It's only the Dr. clomp, clomp, clomping up the steps with my cure

and I'm sure

or am I?

My nails they scratch me, no not me, I meant, the nails, they hold the bed down for me

or is it against?

Last night I laid on the FOR/ AGAINST bed

and what was dancing to the right of my head?

or in it?

It moved I tell you! I touched it - it's true!

My, but this room has a lovely view

A baby is crying - I guess I should feed it  (look at watch) is it time?

or is there?

But work, work, work, work, work. I must write, as I hide, as I write

Rest, oh I should rest. But doing nothing is harder than doing something.

But I must rest

He said so


What is that smell? It smells like piss! It smells like stain. It smells yellow



I have the key! I won't be interrupted, I won't be interrupted


Did you see? The Key! I threw it out the window!

Now, it's just me and this rope, and that woman

Did you see her?

she's just right there, why I hear my voice reflected in her hair

Somebody's knocking at the door, (sing to do me a favor let em in)

Just ignore it

That's only him, the Dr., John

That's  only

An axe? An AXE? A Shining Axe?


This room looks different

It's bare

Oh, I remember, it was that woman and me,

Did you see her?

we peeled, and peeled and peeled

Yes, we did, just her and I

Did I tell you? She broke the pattern?

She did!

I fell in love with the crayola color red-violet at four. I wrote my first poem at five. I spoke Flemish before German, much to Oma's chagrin. I can carry a tune in a bucket. I laugh at good commercials. I'm balanced in an off-kilter kind of way. I love my Sdi-Fi and have my communicator though I'm still waiting on my transporter. I want to catch Synesthesia in my old, old age when I no longer need to differentiate.
