Senses

The taste of coffee sticks to my throat

Can’t scrape it off, can’t spit it out

My eyes water thanks to every light source

I rub till they’re red, I whack till they’re blue

These jeans are making my fingers twitch

I’d pull them off if I could bear to touch them some more. In public, of course.

The smell of the yogurt pot is making me sick

To bin it would be to smell it up close. My nose is even blocked, yet here we are.

The sound of my breathing is choking me up

I’m holding my neck but it just won’t let up.

 

Today just let my senses rot. Only guitars should go up to 11.

Touch

What felt soft now feels numb

What felt hard now feels numb

What felt cold now feels numb

What felt warm now feels numb

What felt worthwhile now feels numb

These fingers of mine can only feel Cortopin, itches, and cuts.

It’s the new sensation, and I’m quick to the touch.
