The experience without the medium,
Reaction without reactants

A Challenge II / XVI

The experience without the medium, Reaction without reactants:

Heartbeating in my mouth, corotid Trying to blow my throat out.

My hands that sweat too much, Sweating, way too many beads

My hands that sweat too much, Sweating, way too many beads of bodywater, from pores from glands

--God, gross, body-gross--

The same beat in my chest, like a kick drum,

The same beat in my chest, like a kick drum, Irregular, like me playing with a kick drum.

Spacing out, my brainspace flooded,

Spacing out, my brainspace flooded, swimming without the means,

Spacing out, my brainspace flooded, swimming without the means, drowning without the lungs to fill,

Spacing out, my brainspace flooded, swimming without the means, drowning without The lungs to fill, without being deprived Of oxygen,

drowning without dying.

Staring at an empty truth,

Staring at an empty truth, staring at nothing at all, eyes gone wide

Staring at an empty truth, staring at nothing at all, eyes gone wide Jaw clenched, as if I was inches from

Staring at an empty truth, staring at nothing at all, eyes gone wide Jaw clenched, as if I was inches from Something true, almost free but failed.

Hand clenched, wrapped around something

Hand clenched, wrapped around something Cold instead of something warm,

white knuckles

white knuckles red palms

white knuckles red palms red eyes

black heart

black heart dead on arrival

black heart dead on arrival doomed from the start
