A Chain of Thoughts

January 8, 2015 at 7:53 am (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

goes off like firecrackers

in my mind

everyday in the afternoon

leaving my head smoking

in the heat

like a burnt coconut shell

then I drink water

and watch TV

till my brain hums

like a garbage bin of flies

only in the evening

when light fades

and birds take to the sky

do my thoughts slow down

and begin to silently disappear

into the solace of darkness.

.
