60 Seconds of Madness

Stoned
stood in the bathtub
head back
shower pulsing
rain drops glide over skin.
Eyes closed
counting to 60
for that deep clean.
Scenes before
dance in my mind
clocks
flying through the air
hands slowly
tick tock
tick tock
while above
the Mad Hatter stands
pouring rum
spitting over the rim
flooding the saucer
rum fountain
chortling
the man with the fat face
he gambles
while head back
darkened stain
slides across across the shadows
a taint unseen.
Time up
head under water
60 second done
what magic
what fun.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
