More form experiments

The clock swirled nauseatingly on the wall,
The patient stirred and crossed his hairy arms
The ticking of the pens across the clipboards
Grated on his tried sensibilities.

The patient stirred and crossed his hairy arms
The children playing with the dingy toys
Grated on his tried sensibilities.
He crossed his ankle on the other knee.

The children playing with the dingy toys
Irritated him. He turned away, and
He crossed his ankle on the other knee.
The woman sniffling into a ragged tissue

Irritated him. He turned away, and
The fabric in his mind began to tear.
The woman sniffling into a ragged tissue
Drove him to a terrified despair.
