It picks me up

And slams down

Like a rag doll

In the jaws of a dog

It dances and sings

It racks my brain

It calls my name

It says:

You caught me once

You caught me twice

But you won’t catch me again


Adrift in my delirium

In space and time


I whirl and whirl

Like a dervish

Turning to a tune played by God


The room spins about my head

Where am I?

Where am I?

Where am I?
