Grizzly

Mill Old
 
 

I’ve been here before,
between fences of wakefulness,
frosting bare-toothed
in stripy drift.
 

The tattered angle
of my shadow
remained,
its ebony gore
still caught
in the bear’s black paw
 

while I
slipped away,
 

lost to the drag
and claw of sleep,
grey matter clasping
the grainy snap
of what may
or may not
have been.

  1. It is at the edge most titillating. I go there too, whenever I can.

    Such a nice piece you’ve composed; visual and evocative, eloquent in its simplicity.

    Cheers!

    Lovely to read in the early morning – delicate sense of the moments between dreams and wakefulness..
