Poem: Hand Fizz

It’s a sensation,

We all know,

The little hum in our skin,

Then weirdness of failed blood flow,

A bit of us made to sleep,

When limbs given not enough air,

They go pins and needles,

A weirdness in our cells,

From not moving right,

A disconnect from our exact nerves,

And yet motion totally fine.

Bang a sleeping foot,

Against the concrete hard,

And maybe it will awaken,

But hurt so much to get there.

I’m sure I could find,

Giving it a look,

The reason limbs fall asleep,

I’m sure there’s an answer in some book,

But in the meantime,

The tingle strikes,

At my wrist,

At my hand,

And makes me not sure what to do,

Except wait for it to get up and go.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
