WIDDERSHINS


Voices flutter and peck
as a gloom of entropy
holds
sway.

Temptation dances swiftly
to find me –
pinioned.
Lepidoptera'd to the stand.
Decisions, demands, desires
crowding
                  the exits.

Impasse reigns.

Stasis settles from
mote freighted air -
synapses crashing closed.

Inspiration dawns refreshed,
telegraphing to ossic archipelagoes.
My reluctant puppet stirs, rising.

Krakenesque -

breasting the waves of lethargy

sounding slowly.
