Barely breathing

heartbeat slowed

blood moves sluggishly

through ambivalent veins

my only detectable

signs of life



on the horizon


that I am looking

at you

looking at me

your expression




on the wall

cannot be trusted

no truth to be found

in my own reflection


Perhaps I am meant instead

to step through

this looking glass

fall down the rabbit hole

surrender to the madness

become the red queen
