By: Daniel Hodgman

Between the synapses
And neurons spin turbulent
While my whole mind collapses.
Dust covered
Electric sparks
Rust on unequal arcs;
A trodden
Conveyor belt,
No stop with no start.
Skulking through tunnels
Then hurdling past lapses
On protoplasm
Stringing along my reactions.
Slung from the shadows
That corrode in the corners
On uneven intervals
That cease to stop.
Quick jabs
Then a pop
Another wave and K.O.
Finger flames
My mind
Real slow.
