Static

static [shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh]
static [will you see it?]
static [fragments of a dream]
static [wishing it away]
static [prodding the synapses]
static [ticking in the dark]
static [I tell myself I will not go]
static [even as I drive there]
static [behind a veil]
static [repeat after me]
static [no, it’s not a threat]
static [deep, slow, intentional]
static [shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh]
