As the 4 AM hour

            approaches

        & reggae music

           & drugstores

        & comedy of errors

   the stripped down verse

 

        attempts meaning

           persuades its way

                onto page

        in top secret form

           with no rules

      or preconceptions

 

No, we will not

            allow that

        pure imagery

           forcibly thrown

       out of skull

   in violent fury

 

      the fates

  spare no victims

     time is time

  & when it’s up

      it’s up

   & that’s that

 

    & we all

         deny it

    pretending

       it’s a hoax

   a grand illusion

       a bad dream

   we’ll awake from

 

Ha!

   guess again

         guess again

             this is reality

     so you damn

             better

  get used to it
