an indention of absentia

lost
tired
a forest of rat teeth
yellowed incisors
sharply sprang
from the sickly gums
buried deeply in the soil
enameled roots
thriving
untended
gnashing
a constant gnawing
a thousand pinpricks
of purple light
dancing playfully
along the hollow cavities
we alternate positions
arms snaked around each other
a sleepless fugue
of exhausted terrors
given up on inertia
as the mouth of the rabid rodentia
spit us hurtling
into the dark clouds swirling

dreaming
restless sleepwalkers
waking exhausted
in fits of fifteen minute naps
jawbone valleys
a gully of dried spit
an indention of absentia
a wooden dentata
splintered
tired
alone
