A Needle and Thread

Through

Those eyes

A string

Pulls

Jerks

Tempts

And fascinates

My dreams.

Tugging

At

My

Demons,

To

Leave.

But the

Needle

Has traveled

Through

My nervous

System

Like

“Ice and

Sugar dust.”

Woven

So

Deep

Wrapped

Around

My heart

Too neat.

A

Tapestry

Of

Thread,

Ultimately

Pricking

Through

Each

Lobe

Of

My

Jaded

Brain,

Slipping

Out

Of

My

Ducts,

Melted ice

And

Ember

Dust.
