What Happens in a Neural Fog

Curling up is defeat and liberation

Movement to where nothing is- no

Smell, no sight, no song except a sad

Distant murmur outside oneself

Belonging is no object, tomorrow disappear

Into an infinity. A universe where the black

Hole pulls one into desperate oblivion.

Where no mind can exist, no limbs,

No hair, no eyes, no mouth except a scarlet

Toothless hole, sucking like a great eyeless

Fish on the life-blood of nothing.
