Derangement

I’ve felt the soft surface of temporal fabric,
watched the world begin to fold
small, then
            smaller &
            smaller…

…organic origami elided
            into water,
rearing over what remained of
what was no longer me.

Electricity began to scream;

nameless incandescence;

sound waves of colour;

cold feathers
folding down,
            down,
                down.
Inside
nothing remained but space & light,
a deep divide
between body & mind.

Quick flicker of panic
as all thoughts plunge into ice…

then it doesn’t matter
what I try to write or
if I write

nothing at all.
