Technically I'm licensed to wed these fish gathered here.
I can make them meld anytime at all.
Put them in a stew and meld their flesh.

I am lost in a haze of medication.
I push and shove through the fog.
And though I make attempts to show myself,
You can't reach me.

I'm getting pretty tired of lying in my bed,
waiting for the moments to end, lined up compiled in my head.
I haven't yet seen the shape of the stars' alignment,
Uninterrupted analog, frameless as the wind.

Posting up in the corner, watching the stars align.
Worshipping the Great Mortal Divine.
Frameless Divine Mortal Lover.

In the basement, where the little dolls hide,
you will not remember what happened last night.
In the basement, under the stair,
you will not remember what became of you there.

Reaching for my medication
