Default Liquid Remedies

He’s in a lightless corner, curled up tight
On a flattened box tucked out of sight
He numbs the pain that no one sees
With magic liquid remedies

The pulp-pad beneath him is a cotton-candy cloud
Yesterday’s noise is not so loud
And the ghosts that circle all around
Cease their flight and settle down
To lay beside him like lone wolves
Succumbing to the pack.

Hey, dude, that's pretty good.

Old theme but you acquit it well.

Through the smoke and fog there comes a form ... shape shifting ... could this be the Future?
