Depression

DEPRESSION

the ritual begins
slowly
undetected
as he packs my skull
with styrofoam
to the brim of suffocation

he plugs my nerves into
electric angst
and turns the volume
full blast static
noise
and not the kind you can
tune out

then he wraps me in
the iron shroud
lays me on my side
tousles my hair
and burns
the world
