Eyes wide shut

Her left hooded eyelid lingeres just over the edge

where lashes touched her hair

silver pupil is less widened from the right one

it didn’t hurt: close to a mosquito bite

red mark in the root of a left hand

became the only trail she walked

to her dream

to her drea

to her dre

to her dr

to her d

to her.

  1. Wow, I spent a lot of time thinking about that one. I started with heroin, tree that theory out. Graduated to a rusty nail… Threw that out. Tattoo? Nope. Still pondering it.
    Nicely done!
