    Stuck
    By Drusy


    Suspended animation
    Distended and distorted
    Time, like a line, stretches out
    From a bang to a whisper
    And from it is selected
    A sliver.
    Now pull it out gently.
    A silver set picture
    Translucent in the voided dark
    Of the universe's developing room
    Hung from a thread
    Dead weight
    Where fate and two sisters
    Crowd around with scissors.
    One snip
    Crack, like a whip,
    The line snaps back
    And I am staring down
    At your face in its coffin
    Frozen at this age.
    I am … stuck
    In this moment.
