DREAMING KNIVES AND NIGHTMARES by Puma Perl

Offering #10 from Ten Pages Press is now available: Dreaming Knives and Nightmares by Puma Perl.

dreaming in daylight

she fakes orgasms
with herself
just to get it
over with,
hopes sleep
will come,
dreamlessly.

she misses
nicotine patches,
and glorious
nightmares,
wakes
in darkness,
reaches
for the magic,
cums
like a robot.

the sun
does push-ups,
fantasy runs laps,
moon exploded,
hours knock
on windows,
she sleeps
in daylight,
night waits.
