Come, look

they call as if I don’t sleep

and then they are right

behind me

beside me

in front

when all I see is in my head

numbers dizzying

even the most tenacious

attempt at presence

eludes me

as if I and it were air


twisting with no end

towards something and nothing

and then I dive in and

jolt back as if attempting

to restart

the beating of my own heart
