MAGPIE...Prompt #171


                           
                            WAKING, WALKING, SINGING, IN THE NEXT DIMENSION?
                                                     1979/ Morris Graves
                           

THANK YOU, Tess, at  Magpie Tales....



PANIC ATTACK

A wounded crow rushes
through the entry to my veins.
I'm waiting for the scream,
but my mouth won't do as it's told.

Damage flies swiftly on bright wings,
a blot of crimson forms a Rorschach.
I swear it looks like a velvet Jesus.

I feel the delirium soaring,
spreading to the field of stars.

Hovering bird clutches,
knows the way of return,
hushes the throb,
lets a zephyr blow through me.
