A little piece based on my periodic REM ruptures:

The Visitor

You arrived
In the fracture
Of the false dawn
Fully fletched
And launched
With the bitter bile
Of gangster
The gunshots
The sirens
Blocks away and
The strings of my
Paralyzed instrument
Black on black
In my heart and
Outside the window
The murmurs
The huff and ache
Through the temples
Desperate for morning
