Writing: Uncertain

by Beauchamp Art

(Fall Awake)

 

…Some time later
say, three in the afternoon
still reeling the midnight movie
all phantasmagoric pantomime,
confusing flights of
fancy that
hadn’t seen them in a
while since wide-eyed
roll it back
replay and roll over on this
dog day
fetch something to read.

How familiar are these
strobing recollections?

Seizured in
fitting partially
complex,
puzzled
who the –
hello, now what does that
clock tolls
giving away the rest of the
stoic son of
mild-mannered,
mid-morning
for the semi-bat-like
habitual over-sleeper.

Still unsure
who saw.

Seem to have seen them
but fully aware that
simply
is not the case
of mistaken identity
criminal
conviction that what
occurred,
occurred.

Starting a conversation when
fully a
wake to fine never left
but misplaced.

Where did this start?

When was
carrion, pecking at a roadside rodent.

Recklessly inhuman.

Meander, must have swerved
to avoid the con
sequence of events leading
role play
final act,
curtain call.

Something falls
awake…
