Fermented Darkness

it’s a demon, a dark-defying demon who
has time to wait
a demon who has time to wait for
the sun to go down

it’s a demon, a predatory parasite who
has claws at the ready
a parasite who has claws at the ready
to dig into the skull

it’s a parasite, a demonic deadly drug that
thickens as it waits
a drug that thickens as it waits to
seep into the brain

it’s a drug, a sticky-sweet sugar that
ferments as it settles
a sugar that ferments as it settles in
its own increasing darkness


For #TimeToTalkDay, February 1, 2018 – a day to talk about mental health.
