“Moonshine Drunk” by Paula Lietz

Moonshine Drunk

moonshine drunk in no particular universe

with a lost sense of beyond I unravelled

and in the dark determined I was losing my mind

dubious support a sunspot in mad distress

spewing jagged minuscule lifeforms within

flailing dust particles

flaring in indignation we both burned

sucking oxygen in great pathetic gasps

black hole brazenly beckoned, lurching

I teetered on that invisible line between

spheres, realms and dimensions

some great force set me on pause

if I had proof of a hell I would damn you there

but annoyingly the sun rose and I was still

moonshine drunk in no particular universe
