I went into hospital


I went into hospital
Where they inserted a catheter tube
I was on a bed of roses
My hand across the rose petals

Then blood began to flow like a river
Flowing back into the earth
Where bloodsuckers with black wings
Swarmed across the docks

I went into hospital
My legs felt like lightning bolts
Everyone there became fairground chimps
Running up and down the wards ringing bells
Sitting on reception, grooming for fleas

I went into hospital
In the examination room the light went out
A woman with a stone face and a stone hand
Was pushed in, standing on a pedestal
She felt around my insides
As if searching for keys

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
