Provides warmth

and colour

In a metallic world

of black and white

Making it bearable

Less exposed


Sometimes captured

To feel more human

To have softer edges

To have clarity

Sometimes confusion

Be happier



Sometimes void

I can talk

I can speak

I can think

Sometimes a cul-de-sac

Unfreezes the boundaries

Sets loose ability

Stalactites dripping

Often regelation

No need for ceremony

Everyone relaxes


Sometimes narcolepsy

It’s a different world

A globe of emotion


Sometimes centrifugal sickness

No need for one hundred words

if ninety nine will suffice

Kindness for the entire world

 Always drunk.
