Jacobin Paranoia


warmth envelops,
dissolving the
bustle and noise:
liquid stillness
offers but a momentary
tranquil once-upon-a-time;
it is so easy to
drift off and forget

here, the watery balm
soothes celiac rashes,
a moment's reprieve
that shuts out reality,
provides sombre retreat...
cares float away
until unwanted thoughts
stray with blistered report.

It is quite possible,
through bolted locks,
to be a victim
of home invasion,
for someone to play
Corday to one's Marat--
a hapless victim, stabbed
at home, in one's bath.

  You say you worry that beings with clairaudience can see you right through your walls, or perhaps even kill you right through them. I paranoid schizophrenic empathize. I don't appear to be alone either.
