Charred, creamed, creped

 

The dream -- sandwiched, cradled,

straitjacketed, contained. Blanketed,

 

coated, draped. Trapped, nailed, locked,

roped. Barred, walled, blocked,

 

devoured like hope -- axled, coked.

Nightmare feeding frenzy, 

 

no escape. Prayer, the prey, 

charred, creamed, creped.
