sirens! whistles! twist-

ings blow, mustn’t sing joyful

musings, SHH! (It comes)


in all of Its masks,

charades, façades – chisel and

nail, chipping, digging


pick, pick pinprick! like

clockwork, tick tiCK TICK TOCK (talk)

wiggling words work,


their wonder, coated

in fabricated pain, {Con-}

vincingly, pulling


the strings of an Em-

path, SHH! It’s coming, pounding

its venom into


the air, BUT little

does It know, the Empath holds,

the stopwatch with lock


and key, seconds tap –

tAP TAPPING the timepiece; STOP!


(I wanted to attempt a story in Haiku-ish form. I am in need of counting syllables today – it helps soothe me. :-))
