Metamorphosis

Miyuki Tatsuma

A strange creature

pokes its unexpected head

through the cracked shell,

half-complete –

I feel like peeled fruit

stripped

of childish fictions,

awakening

into consciousness

for the first time,

exposed –

What kind of dawn

is heralded by these strange cries?

In the garrulous chaos

of this sad, worn-out world, the

            N E V E R E N D I N G S T R E A M

            of voiceswordslightstextsoundimage

            <scroll down>

empties itself

into the mind like

a loaded gun –

constant absorption

impedes

            metamorphosis
