30/30

Giant moons fill the autumn sky

September goes out with crunchy leaves

pumpkin spice

and a chill in the air

29/30

The man on the bus had a puppet
the creepy waxy kind
it stood on a pedestal
and bobbed it’s head
with a kind of face that said
“I want to see you dead”

Behind again

Yes because Destiny. We’ve been working on this fucking raid ALL FUCKING WEEK, with one rest day, so yeah, 4 pomes. Here you go.

1

hums of electricity running
blue light of an LED screen
comforting non-silence mistaken for quiet
all of a sudden it’s gone
true silence is eerie
unsafe
no steady whirrs to comfort you
no sound of wildlife from inside the dark room
just the sound of your soft quiet breath
willing itself to be louder
to combat the suffocating silence

 

2

there was a man in my car as I was walking towards it
adjusting the seat and reaching for the wheel
I blinked for a second
and then he was gone
my car was locked and empty and parked where I left it
I shuddered, got in and drove

 

3

cat is curled and purring
trying to sleep and annoyed at the screen
vying for my attention
to be present and pet him
but my shelter is almost complete

 

4

the steady drip of the water in the fish tank
lulls me off to sleep
the eventide is my day
I come alive with the light of the moon
and tire with the dawn of the sun

24/30

I just needed to tie my shoes
tie them before they found me
with my bag packed and a handful of money in my wallet
hopefully enough to get me out of town
or at least a sleeping bag
a note expressing love
it was all a lie
I just need to get out
get out before they find me.

23/30

The fortune in the cookie is: “in dreams and reality, nothing is impossible”

I don’t think of six impossible things before breakfast.

But if I did, waking up for breakfast would be one them.

I run on moonlight, in the lunar energy and quiet shadows.

The air is soft and mysterious. Invisible leaves crunch satisfyingly when I step.

 

22/30

Little orbs provide a rosy glow

ice melting makes little noises in the glass

spouse and cat snoring softly

going to bed before sunrise.
