Haunting apathy clouds and clots
the blood beneath insomniac eyes
and the thoughts becoming tangible
simply search for reasons.
If everything is settled now, then
why the sudden start of regression
leading to apathetic depression
from a catalyst to happiness?
Temporary respite from endless fatigue
and allergies to chocolate cake--
sick in my mouth and mind
and lethargy the glue between my sheets:
a silent prayer never crosses the ceiling
because amidst all the turmoil of
a phantom city
never was a god.
