I could live without you.
I’d be that raisin in the sun. Relentless
Agonizing Fire. My heart
Weak eyes, twisted sight. A whispered whispering voice
with all voices drowning in hollow winds.
The flesh would wither from my body. My bones
would break one by one by one by one.
My festering mind, restless, in tangles
I would be always
one breath from extinction.
An inescapable, eternal, internal, Howl!
