Abridged Reality

If you try hard enough

You can grow deaf to the world

Live in absentia,

Home-grown dementia,

A home grown right

Between your stoppered ears,

Sand filling your mouth and nose.

Little pockets of bliss;

A determined abyss:

Life has always looked better

In the director’s cut.

  1. This is one of the best and most frightening things you’ve ever written. It reminds me of Sylvia Plath, or – if I may be forgiven a momentary display of vanity – my own writing at its best, ha ha. “Life has always looked better / in the director’s cut.” Brilliant.
