Breath & Shadow

Fall 2009 - Vol. 6, Issue 3


written by

Todd Hanks

I discarded my sanity like

a dream from the night before.

Slime-topped minutes dripped

from a sundial.

Delusion was a man who

blinded me with jellyfish hands.

Crab-like thoughts scuttled

through the husk of my head.

I was surrounded by a sound

like a busy highway at night.

The sky was apocalyptic gray.

I traveled from one interdimension

to another, bleeding from

the pores of a stone.
