, ,

you twitch in new skin and wine
changes this ill-fitting coat
into a fluid ball gown

uneasy in this place surrounded
faces behind masks, one little pill
they become friends like home

this body herky jerky foreign
yet yours, falls serene
just a drag or two will do

abandoned here alone hollow
dumped from a forgotten world
cake fills the emptiness

bombarded with the images of this place
your new brain bobs in the sea of it
typing life preservers hoping not to drown
