I Close My Eyes

introductionsMan

I Close My Eyes

I near anxious. Long past nervous.
I’m a rattling stone in a cobbled street.

Irrational from head to foot.
I’m a sharp and sudden jolt at night,

a desire to close my eyes
and confess long beyond nodding.

And I stand before this expectant
crowd, and introduce myself.

 

 

Found & remixed from Bleak House
and my 1991 Winter Journal
