Hospital Segmental(s) 3 of 5

3 of 5

The last moment
can’t be taken
It’s the last moment
that can be taken
Pain talking counterintelligence
a viral squeak rising to a diffuse
scream of unknown origins
Moaning waves go pounding
through an ocean of distress
The last moment
can’t be taken
It’s the last moment
that can be taken

There’s another moment
another surge energy recoil
another moment
can’t be taken
It’s a voice dividing
clone-able echos so back to back
overlapping the underpinnings
all its ends the beginnings
Then there’s another
last moment
taken

It can’t be taken
so shake in place, forward back
The last moment
has another on top
on its heels
a moment is another
last moment
that can’t be taken
Can’t be taken
counter to intelligence
speaking through voices
outside the veil
all meaning lost

Now drugs in syringes
fingers pumping plungers
useless
The anti-intuitive continuation
yelling, rocking, grasping arms
all around little voices
squeaking
barely penetrating the force field
containment of one moment
lasting forever

It can’t be taken
but there’s another moment
another moment
until blackness and silence come
with another plunger push
soft black stillness flooding
IV catheter
blackness
and then the first moment
that can be taken
