VALENTINE'S NIGHT

Night time terror
Your eyes close
Purple blotches of hellish
      take shape
Provoking fear haunts
Your mind expanding

A hammer at the edge of the sink shines
faucet drips
Wash the arms of your lover
Steel pads and putty knives
Test patterns turn 'round
Flat ginger ale tastes extremely good tonight
passing it back and forwards
from each others puckered lips

        Smash
The temple of your head must be cleansed now
Sponge the hammer stains

Wind-up alarm clock rings down
Brown eyes won't open
tremble in sleep's eternal time night terror

Such reality can't be a dream
The elephants' stumbled path
through the jungled coils of the mind
are secured now
Rest peacefully with night time lover
