Out Of The Darkness
Where does the pathology end and the personality begin?
I wonder about this as I slowly walk out into the mid-afternoon sun
after spending three long days under the covers in my always-unmade bed.
I squint and a tear, unbidden, rolls down my pale face.
I feel every bone in my skeleton working to find its proper place
in the orchestration of coordination as I half-stagger
down the street to the bodega to buy a newspaper
so that I can be certain of what day it is
and if they are still looking for me;
having fled the jurisdiction
and in hiding
