Half​-​Remembered Thing

from by Stromm



The half remembered vision
caught between dream and wake
Who are the shadows on the wall?
A hundred people marching with wet feet
The sounds of voices I can’t make out what they are saying
And the window is speckled with refracted spines
Droplets of cut glass crystals
I can’t see through

I can’t see through my eyes ‘cause they are
Spiked with tears
But no one can see what is inside
Deep inside my belly you will find
The knots of rage
I am pacing round the cage like a wild brute
With twisted fur

Is he still here?
He’s no longer there

But the clock ticks
Secure and warm and round
A steady sound
Punctuating the past
Marking the present
