A sudden stop

Spencer Healy
Apr 26, 2022

like when the music cuts out in a movie

and the camera zooms in on one character's face

just as they are having some important thought

we hear it narrated

that kind of stop

for no reason

maybe as a result of tiredness

exhaustion which I didn't earn

sometimes it all must stop

I suppose

unconsciously maybe I just can’t keep up

with emotion



there’s just a little kid up in my head after all

most of the time he's unprepared

I’m a struggling optimist. some of these are proper narrative pieces and some are more poetry, others lean towards stream of consciousness.
