Waking from drug sleep tangled night,

sahara mind extending to incognita

ripples round a fire still burning

at the back behind the ears;

flames curl over the scalp,

here and there exploding

pointlessly, above my eye

or inside the ear.

My teeth feel as if they are about to depart.

I do not have the energy to weep.

A cup of tea, English solace,

and caresses from the cat.

Is it time to take another pill yet?

I string my lament on a chain of prayer,

some steadiness

mid of the sulphurous storm,

no end in sight.
