Empty Crawling Night by Michael Britton

Spring/Summer 2015

Empty Crawling Night


Empty crawling night

inside locked cages and stupendous rooms.

Watch the fool

climb up those invisible towers

to kiss the neck of some whore-street hooker,

laughing like a loon into your God-fuck

tripping his life down gloomy lanes

behind the curtain of your eyes.

…I sleep fine now…

thanks for asking.

The best dreams

are those least remembered.
