The felt self of skin and brain send reciprocal messages.
An idle escape plan.
There is water
and I am naked. It is Thursday or Saturday --
drunk and mid-circuit, a time to wait.
Self-tactilation is difficult when attacked by choice.
Self-destruction is easy when not in motion;
this is a lie.
Deep breaths. Put back on bed. Touch fingers.
Grab hold. Lock arms. Do not let go.
Sleep. Change position. Sleep.
