the ridiculous standard

95 of 100_opt.jpg
time
   in your head
      ticking
         scratch-scratch
            Squeaky
               permanently damp
                  a nail-biter
           the past is everywhere

all words, except the title, from page 107 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #95 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #24 for National Poetry Month.
