The Bat

The bat calls from the window,
“Come with me and I will show you the future.”
I ponder… I accept,
choosing to leave my glasses behind
to keep uncertain certainty out of focus.
Up over the sky and past time,
he shows me my death
and everything in between.

    • my anxieties about my future, whether i can truly improve myself (physically, mentally, professionally, socially), wanting to know what’s in store but if that was an actual possibility would i really want to look (pretty cliched)… i was thinking about all this when i was drunk last night, our living room has a juilet balcony and when i’m smoking i always watch the bats fly past, but last night when i was washing up in the kitchen one kept on squeaking by the living room window, sounding like it was calling me to come to the window… i just projected my then current mind set onto his intentions..
