In quiet moments visions swirl across
the confines of silence; coloured with hues
of memory's dry weighty influence.
Three joints bend on six legs as I feel air

protects this soft interior; spirit

the sky is covered with sudden darkness.
Awake - sweat stings the realisation
of I am alive again as a man.
