Sink Into My Stomach

from by Marcus Eugene



Sink Into My Stomach

I ignore the fault lines
running through my head
they fall down my throat
and knot up my neck
children are killed
in the most graphic dreams
I sink into my stomach
and scream

I'm told I'm a jerk
and that I don't seem real
I'm constantly asked
how I feel--I don't feel
The settled confusion
is worse than it seems
I sink into my stomach
and scream

I had a dream
that a woman was sad
Her babies were bruised
by a friend who'd gone mad
My mind is filled
with most shocking scenes
I sink into my stomach
and scream


from With Tongue & Teeth, released September 19, 2014
