your listless eyes

© 2012 S. D. Stewart
your listless eyes
in a box inside of a box
inside of a grimy wrapping.

I’m rigid in the face.
I’m the snare raging

nitrous suck
cheap euphoria whets synapses
concavity deepens, degradation occurs

a stone pounded into smaller pieces
see the cloud of rock dust
someone triggered.

evasive action
I am unsupervised.
shuffling minor events
I am a belly full of lead shot.
I was the skeleton key.

there is no cure.
