Gurgling Screams

 

1. In this bad dream, my dog turned into a rabbit

that accidentally ran into my grandpa’s hand.

 

2. In this bad dream, I suddenly rubbed cocaine into my

little dog’s mouth, between his tiny shark teeth

and they broke out of the gums.

 

3. In this bad dream, it was so dark and hard to see

my rabid dog I was afraid he’d been consumed

by an underwater snake and his barks had sunk

into gurgling screams and I started convulsing

from the inside out forever.
