Swayback by Abigale Louise LeCavalier

I cant remember my name
shifting uncomfortably
in my comfortable chair,
it’s about the bad music,
and the words that chirp by.

A threat to the nervous system.

Buckling under the pressure
to perform like a star
like a super-star,
like broke-down swayback
like a defunct Prozac robot.

I’m a biter
an endangered species;
upright uptight
living for last night.

‘…and it breaks my heart to see you this way…’

That’s what they say,
listening to some other daydream
and I sit and ponder
how I’m going to get through
the next five seconds.

I’m a candle without a wick.

I’m a cigarette without a match.


Abigale Louise LeCavalier lives in San Diego California by way of Mammoth Lakes California. An admittedly ‘self absorbed poet’ and full time Alien, Abigale writes from the heart.
