Six for Wednesday ~ 3 “Schrödinger’s Cat”

6-word-3

Your heart keeps shattering
my grave expectations.
Strips of canvas drenched
in carnivorous red.
Signs, oracles, prophets
What is to come? What is to come?

Drums forged in human morass.
Tight panicked rows of teeth,
you grind me to a pulp.
Hull smashed and spit
to the far corners.
No one knows if we’re alive or dead.

I’ve taken the cat out for a walk,
I sense her humiliation
the staccato steps, a tinnitus of defiant shrieks.
Where are we going?
From which box are we to be exhumed?
Does it even matter which planet we live on?

  1. Such vivid imagery – and yet taking the cat out the box seems to prove ‘you’ exist in the world – despite her humiliation – which made me smile..perhaps she can help with what is to come

    One’s existence will not matter if they have a hold on you. In this case, it becomes frighteningly real and eerie
