a lazy holocaust -
caught between
empty prozac
bottles and the
blue madness –
my heart screams
for silence, and
the sardonic rush
of wind tearing
through my hair
out the car window,
speeding north –
to someplace
the fluorescent light
won't hurt my
eyes, where more
than shadows will
sing me to sleep,
where my
insides will
pulse with
undying will
to stay sacred.
