Four

I sit alone rambling to

myself, in thought, word

and deed.

 

Reality deteriorating before

my perceptions.

I take a walk, to put my

lacking sanity to the test.

 

Reaching the bottom of the

iron stairs, I find that in solitude

my sanity excels.

 

The question is whether I am

dying to the world or the

world is dying to me.

 

Either way, I’ll enjoy the requiem.

The truth is that

there is no story.

None worth telling,

nor worth hearing.

 

These games of

necromancy,

in absence of

the living.

 

And the excess

 

of sanity, as

with each idea

I micro-dose psychosis

 

Plagued by sane agony

as we seek the

bliss of madness

Abstract time

fragmented as

if it were

lily-pads or

unaligned stepping

stones

 

That tell

of no direction

v. A Cosmic Jape

I thought of

becoming a doctor

at some point

 

Between the

needles and the

hospital visits, as a child

I guess I never

had the patience

 

Bipolar one,

Mixed Episode

Literally,

manic-depressive

 

It’s like your

heart is your skin

Your brain is the

size of Mars

Your head is the

size of Earth

Your mind the

size of Jupiter

And your soul

is Ur-anus.

 

The difference

between a sane

person and an

insane person

Is that the sane

person knows

that they are insane

That’s why the

medicated artists

become tireless or

lose their creative

perspective.

 

(Jape, that word

sounds delightful.)

[I’m going to name

my first child ‘Jape”,

it is unisex.]

Tantalized by

the dwindling

dreams of these

my victims

 

Martyrs without

intentions, our actions

were only to melt

away their symptoms,

for all madness has no cure.
