crepuscular, dim
fever dreams floating in clouds
bats drink bleeding light

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    This is almost vampire to me. I like it. I suppose your baby’s still feverish?
    All the best.

    • Hi Alice–thanks! Yes–we both have it now–hand sanitizer nonetheless 😉

      We’re both better though 😉

        I am amazed that you can write so well when viral. A virus shuts down all meaningful thought for me. I’m really impressed now. Get well soon.

        • Alice, thank you. I am still upset that I could not figure out how to write down the postmodern, disturbing, free-flowing associations I spun in my head when I had a temp of 106 with a pneumonia I got many moons ago. All I remember now is they had something to do with a Jesus-and-Mary chain, mary janes, and various street names for marijuana. Heh. At least my denaturing cellular proteins kept me entertained.

          Delirium that deadly should have some kind of ecstatic payoff. I got it, but could not write it down. 🙂

          • Alice Keys says:

            This is so funny. I’m glad you have your humor. Laugh that virus from your throat. I eagerly await my next high fever and delirium and hope my own denaturing cellular proteins are so entertaining. One would normally have to chew peyote and wander naked in the desert to have that kind of inspiration. 🙂

  2. Ow Susan, I never knew you’ve been ill. I am so sorry to hear this. I must have missed a post from you to that effect. And you know I kept on wondering why you had not been posting so prolifically. I am so happy to read you are getting better, Warmest hugs and lots of love to you and the baby too. I do pray you all get back to normal soonest 🙂

    this small stone stretches far, Susan. Great poem. I hope, if you are actually feverish, you feel better very soon.

  4. Get better soon luvey and yes I admit to the world I had to look up ‘crepuscular’. Well done Sus. xx
