Last Night He Was a King!

by Dave Migman

Restless, twisted sheets knotted
stomach bloated, sick, pressed
by an insufferable weight

lung bunched butterflies
silent clocks
a plateau of new-found agonies
strapped to a laughing monkey
on a carousel of grotesques

always the street
always the sound
always sirens
the revellers that feed them

A thread passes through me
I slide slowly down
naked in this bed
with a bloated gut
all that trapped air
hot air of nights drunken
slow night evaporating
in a dying world
