Altered State


Altered State

-Linda Lee Lyberg


I spent the night

Dreaming of other worlds

Instead of tossing and turning

Running from the demons of hell who chased

My writhing soul until I dropped

Completely exhausted

No cool in sight



Linda Lee Lyberg

Author’s note: Our air conditioning went out yesterday so we spent a night in my idea of hell. And it’s one we may have to endure for a few more days.
