Moontide

its warm in here
when reality slides with the rusted wing creak of dry insect flight.
I am holding a burning match but the light ain't bright,
nothing is right,
nothing is right.
I used to talk to god but she went away without a word or a kiss goodbye
and now Napoleon without shoes
rages at the walls with his plastic spoon held high.

at night they speak,
as lightbulbs flicker,
with sodium dry tongues that tell of life before death in the rancid cobweb dusty corners of my room.
sweet little room.
wank stained sheets,
piss painted floors,
shit hole room with rubber walls and no sharp objects.
but the wind cannot touch me here nor her without legs
who dribbles and drools and sits in a puddle of memory. .

. . .but it is cold outside.
