When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

**Psychedelic anticipation


Intermittent blue-brightness
  Unsteady sparkles
*  *  *  Fluorescent flashes   *  *

Insomniac Amelia pretends to sleep

Blaring lines propagate inside closed eyelids
Dizzying roller-coaster glow-rides

Amelia deep-dives in psychedelic night

Gleaming clock-light marks minutes
      with brassband effusion

Confusion      *     Distortion
   Moody hallucinations

Exhausted, Amelia decides to STOP
*    *  Electric spirals fight her desires
Amelia imposes a waltz dance
  *     A rainbow-on-acid offers a ride

Amelia thinks of dawn

Monettian smoothness

Satie-an soft-piano      fades  away

Amelia sleeps…

  1. It is interesting that she was able to get to sleep by thinking about the dawn.

  2. Lights and colours flash right through this poem!

  3. Truly a psychedelic experience — the flash of colour, imagery, language. Well done.

  4. Oh, the cruelty of insomnia. You describe it so vividly, and lyrically. Lovely poem. 💜

  5. A very fresh style – lovely!

  6. Insomnia – when only dawn can make you sleep… the psychedelic swirl made it feel painful

  7. Painfully vivid!

  8. Good thing she was able to finally sleep ~ Hate it when I have insomnia ~ Take care ~
