i am curled in a ball in the dark.
i am standing naked alone.
feeling the time drop through my vessel like the grains of sand in the waist of the hourglass. 
there is nothing i can be but this.
this is all i have.
i surrender to the iron fist around my throat and slip through the fingers like jelly.
spread me on your cracker and eat me whole.
over and over again.
this is the place i always end up.
like the dog chasing it's tail,
around and around i go.
i am curled in a ball in the light.
