STAGE FRIGHT

The conception of a poem twists my stomach like a wet rag

Extract a synonym from beneath sensitive gums and engage with the gore

Pace the carpet and start a fire by means of friction
Settle my ideas in frame while my soles remain inflamed
from walking in circles

Consult the rebel sunbeams intruding through the armour of living room blinds
and seek rejuvenation
The actions of an inverted vampire

Encourage the rebirth of bold banter
previously censored to appear centered

to write
is to writhe
