Bad Dreams Are Made of Teeth

image borrowed from bing

bad dreams are made of teeth

there is no morphine
for this kind of death

it is painfully slow
with only wood
to clamp in your teeth
and wait for rigor mortis

the impulsive breech
so naively embraced
is like sugar borrowed
from a neighbor

when it is time
to return the favor
only a handful
of detritus remains

a good screen death
is always impressive
so bite down hard
on this stick in the mud
