////Poetry: Julie Ann Wenglinski’s “Knocked Out”

Knocked Out
Julie Ann Wenglinski

“Stanton Street” by Trevor Messersmith.

 

 

I love a needled sleep,
an escape from dread regret,
and the blood-stink of my cuts.
I want to spill beneath the light
the wrench and stab of daily din
through an underwater blur
for a fleeting lull from living.
