Nightmare

Frozen in timeless dark
choking on thumbtacks
lips being pierced with poison
I fight and bite and kick.
I find his eye sockets and dig
my fingers in hard, still he pins
me to the ground forcing poison
into my lips.
I manage to escape his grip
and start to dance on the street
with two blue scarves spinning
the freedom of sky around me.
He throws beer bottles that shatter
at my feet
and laughs as my dancing feet turn 
red with blood.
