#OctPoWriMo Day 3




Everything In Disarray


the monster of the house
grinds its teeth
once more
awakened
by temporal knocking

they call a breakdown
an unnatural thing
but it’s a sleeve
to cling to
through the swirling

stained glass
signifies a verge,
the last light
casts its kaleidoscope
on the floor,
centers the framing

every thread
connects to
another limb
and the
monster
dances with you

silhouettes of
marionettes
as dusk settles,
bleeding night
through a crack
in the curtain

the moon is certain
that all of its cycles
are beautiful,
but the possessed
woman gripping
fraying control
isn’t so sure anymore
