strobe light

strobe light

by billy lamont

 

an adult lies in the fetal position
in a strobe light generation

addicted to dreams of-
midnight impulses
& sugar passions

screaming,
"my bedroom a jail cell!
my bedroom/a jail cell"

a baby left in city traffic
getting fitted for a mental straight jacket
a sunflower with a snake at its root
a cherry tree that needs to bear fruit
metaphysical visions of a paraplegic soul
