Images from my previous dreams

by Phoebe Stuckes

‘The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules’
Honeyed sun trap.

Fibres of white mould growing out of the mouth like candyfloss. Vapid eyes and skewed limbs stuck at inhuman angles. A bracelet is a manacle, flame setting silver and eyes aglow.
Name: lambda, Greek letter, Dream name.
A beauty spot can look like a bullet hole from here.
My dream images are never shackled to reality or reason, I get madder if the days grow longer.
There is a hole in this photograph, watch it burn.
