Actions in Repetition

My nightmares are actions in repetition.
My nightmares are actions in repetition.
clasping and unclasping my hands
and repeating the process, over,
and over,
until the screams sprout sore from my throat.
The firing of rifles that never cease and
spray wildly downrange, fast then faster
until the report is a steady drone.
falling until the fright has left me,
falling through boredom,
figuring impossible equations as I fall,
finding solutions and forgetting them and
starting anew.
My nightmares are actions in repetition,
but I always wake.
