The Hanged Man

(Published in One Thousand Questions And No Good Answers)

Trapped in limbo
Floating in dead space 
Time no longer travels 
Only tangible and tasteless. 

Invisible cage of cold suspense 
Claw marks in gelatin fabric. 
Barefoot and defenseless 
Reeling in and out of dreams. 

Master of Silence 
Magician of Duality. 
My heart 

Beats 

Slowly. 

Lift these heavy chains. 

Ripping the plastic 
Breaking out of limbo. 
I’m alive and breathless 
Floating free in the endless dark.
