Drown

Wandering in the somnolent keep                                                                                                             We brush each eternal essence of our deep                                                                                             Depths too well known for those who walk

Eighteen

Glassed

Classed

Furrowed shoulders

from a drowned

air

 

Heiress to an

heir

Comparisons of

the contrary

 

Empty to filling

eye

How off balance

to keep an

account

Medicated

Boredom is

likely to

end in self-destruction

More likely to

dwindle into

greater depths of

boredom.

 

Unmedicated

Boredom is

likely to manifest

as self-destructive

behaviour, when

easy to access

and death

is first

case scenario.

 

Difference?

When medicated

boredom leads to

death, with a greater

period for increase

in boredom.

 

Sincerely,

I’m emotionally

bored.

vi. Tranquilizer in a Minor key

The actions

without thinking

the speckled

thoughts of remorse

before it sinks in

before it kicks in

And the kinks

unravel

As the holiday

become more

tranquil

As the world

becomes more

banal

The internal

worlds that

capture

may we be

wrapped around

until the

sounds meet

the colours

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.]
