By Mike O’Connell
piecing a nightmare together can take
decades
which is why
most of them are reruns
you’ve suspected this
as you try(desperately)
to edit them
attempting to marginalize
parts designated frightening
disturbing or down right evil
purging as many elements
as possible while struggling
with consciousness
with that slice of madness
standing by resting while
sun goes down sleep engages
and the nightmare appears
a living thing complete with pain
and it must finish
or you both shall die
