there is a
tick tick ticking
in my skull
growing louder
as the frustration
steadily mounts

the sparrows find
the ledge and tap at
the window and
i remember how
to breathe once more

skinless in this
steadily falling
unsterile salinity
screaming my love
at the uncaring
universal disdain
reflected in my
hazel disconnection
