Howl, howl, howl at the lightbulb!

Stir the cobwebs so they waft and settle

Wrench apart the four-walled silence

Just a crack

And slip in a toothpick


Rage, rage at the cutlery!

Voice squeezed through your teeth

In a raggedy whisper

Like steam

Like stolen music


Cry at all of nothing

Huddled between your knees

Keep below the window

Like a slug

Of lunatic sleep
