cryptid in july poetry day 13, the mountain creature caught running behind the google car

 

a poem about the mountain creature caught running behind the google car

the mountain creature caught running behind the google car was very sad and ashamed because it had to go outside each day for Vitamin D from the sun

after college it had moved home
to allow for
time to think

between naps
it stuffed its face
into its pillow
and said “Aaaaarrrghhhh”

when it woke
it was almost dark out
and it was sweating

its thoughts swam like animals that could not swim

they struggled
sank
floated to the surface
bloated
upside—down

the mountain creature caught running behind the google car can feel a white sphere of energy inside its stomach

it is a scream

it runs out of its room
down the stairs
away from the living room
and into the street

it can’t control its emotional balance

”i don’t want to be on this earth any more,

i wish there were many earths,

and that i had a choice between them,

i think i would be happier if there were many earths,

i wan’t to destroy the earth,

i am not a heart-warming character in a fable of spiritual renewal,

god i feel fucked today,

there are so many details i want to notice in the world,

but don’t,

i’m starting to live inside myself,

inside my own metal illness,

did that car just take my picture?”
