Sleep Tight

Written by Connie Carmichael 

Tonight,

when matter becomes metaphor,

the walking static on your screen

benignly calls us to a dream.

But it’s never really what it seems.

When we are sinner, saint, and fool

enmeshed in the dancing and tangling of souls,

decked out in rags of lost control,

we polish all our bullet holes.

Spread the love
