Time Out

the self says it is time
to go ashore and on the 
island to the tent made of
that skin too thin forever
crawls into the sleeping-bag 
with freezing dreams buttons  
me up right to the brain pulls 
indolence up over all the
senses bends sensitivity
tightly round my axis

rolls it up into a ball like 
playing in my lap makes me 
probingly rotate it round and 
round till finally it tosses 
blobs of colors up into my
head where splinters glide in 
mirrored patterns like the pieces
in kaleidoscopes and the old
almost familiar galaxies are
circling round black holes
