Calls Through Nightmares

Oftentimes they’d see feet running off

Afraid of encountered days can’t look directly no matter the greeting

Scared of being swallowed but a shell’s best protection efforts don’t work

Bizarre attempts following through, pick up a shovel for a week, abandon it expecting greater returns

Aiming wildly degraded sight, firing without any accuracy forever

Nightmare of most nights.


Roadkill is torture played by the dark character speaking out in frames

Applying pressure when none is necessary ensuring any built resolve is depleted

Ripping confidence away sending unaware travelers to defeat, controller of levers asleep

Terrified of every day, roses here barbed wire there, question marks between

Question marks in impressive fog, backwards isn’t the way these nightmare call to urgency.
