Watch Me

 
Watch me dig my hole again
Ever deeper
In it I will bury the whole world.

Watch me tear the sunshine
Once more
And stick it in your heart.

Watch me smear every smile
Off every face
Till nothing remains
But amalgamated lips.

Watch me drown again
And again
Laugh me all the way
To the bottom.

Well written. Reminiscent of “Con Brio”. Nothing strikes me, however, except perhaps “In it I will bury the whole world”. Nevertheless, both this and “Jellyfish” happily share a mood of silent, utter horror that I strangely is new to me (I say strangely because generally your poems are not exactly teddy bears). The fact that both share that mood per se is very agreable.
