//Blackout, Out-black/Plea for a Palindrome Prayer//

//Blackout, Out-black/Plea for a Palindrome Prayer//

‘I was NEVER there.’

I wake up dreaming after one second of infinite rest,

is minced
behind my eyes.

My pale hands quiver to a pallor
-fingers like so many shakey spindles

The beer is flat
and smooth.

The things which I thought were forward are suddenly backward.

I should have spoken some palindrome prayer
so that I didn’t wind up on the other side of some looking glass.


light shines
in the places I least expect
