Full of Strange Experience

  

The hours tumble down from a geode's seam.
Bits catch the light, some shapes edge
against the mind's tendrils, and experience
catches like rain in a cobble rift―

It is november, I can hear the tearing
of the crust, the gristbite below us
working in its sleep, and another afternoon
I am sprawled over mattress,
a stupor of color almost in reach.

It is hours after the planks have quit me.

I could not walk to the next room:
not now,

not when the crown makes me swarm.

And the body alone is a labyrinth,
room within room: root,
                                                  ruby
                                                                   hive.
