hypnotics

halogen bulbs
hang low, at the ear.
swinging, taunting.
this aluminum rhythm
lulling you to sleep,
however cautious.

paper unicorns,
round and round.
counterclockwise,
gray and meek.
glistening like a soap bar
after July’s rain.

the burn of reliance
comes to a dim
and shadow puppets relish
the truth of an unpainted wall.
to collide, and disperse
in awesome form.
