Splinter by Wanda Morrow Clevenger

chin deep in the
place where perception
not for a fraction
of a second
did I believe
so much could

the accepted pharm
causes tremors
you jerk a number
of times in your sleep
then snore deeply

for a longer second
I consider parallel universes
if I’ve fallen from
one into another
from another
back—does everything
equal out after the
spin out

then roll onto my left side
and wait for sleep
