thread a needle through my head
pull it taught
flatline the electric thoughts

murder of crows
flock of night birds
form the shape of an arrow pointing
at nothing
they disburse and reform into a new book
a revised chapter to re-read
re-finish the novella with a variation on the ending

stop it
before frankenstein finds me and sews a different head on my neck
starts a whole new story to edit
with a deadline like a broken thread
lost in my brain, open ended

bats flee the bat cave
scatter like centrifugal drops
before i can finally flutter into sleep
just before sunrise
