Day Three Hundred and Forty One: 29th June 2013

it’s getting tighter

synapses pulling
between my temples
taut
stretched

mumbling
slurring
words won’t come

only flashes of colour
blinding
searing

and then
quite suddenly
my head implodes

Day Two Hundred and Seventy Seven: 26th April 2013

today was the day
twenty one years ago
you came to me,
a pink wrinkly gift
squealing and fragile
hairless.

years passed, and
you remained hairless
but not wrinkly or squealing
perhaps pink and fragile.

today you have (lots of) hair
but not yet wrinkly,
sometimes squealy
and still pink and fragile.
