Verge

Teetering

On the verge

Of falling

Into oncoming traffic

Barrelling down relentlessly

A convoy of thoughts

Driven by despair

A sleepless despair

Which verges

On the ridiculous

At 4:00am

With the TV blaring

Into insomnia

As Humphrey Bogart

Joins Gina Lollobrigida

To beat down the devil

Before dawn arrives

With kookaburras

And the devil laughs

Watching me teetering

On the verge

Of falling

Into the face

Of oncoming

Nightmares
