So Many Words!

So many words,
In my head.
Not all of which,
Should be said…

So many words!
So many words!
In my head!
In my head!
Spilling onto screen and page.
Racing from my mouth in haste.

So many words!
So many words!
In my head!
In my head!
Disarming their own functionality,
As they exist superfluously.

Mental Residence…


I say it frequently:

“Ohhhhh to live in my head.
A fun place to visit,
But not a great place to live.”


Thoughts race in disorganized flight,
And have too few landing strips.
Clarity at times is fleeting,
Appearing primarily in blips.
My next steps are covered,
By the stretched shadows of blind leaps.
And open graves are created,
For my regret to sleep.


On other occasions it’s orderly inside,
Rapid thoughts are flying straight.
With only short necessary landings,
To connect easily at different gates.
New information is absorbed,
And it’s applied in my active life.
My decisions stand a fighting chance,
Of being well thought out and right.


The two do hang together,
Meeting at conventions and “Pub Brain”.
Strategizing, with one group dominant,
The Insanes versus the Sanes.

Art: Mine, back in 1998 (pretty crazy time in my life)

I am totally inept when it comes to drawing or painting- I typically express art by “honing and highlighting” what’s available around me- photography and poetry etc. I drew this with a black ink pen. When I started looking at it, (mind you, a psychiatrist or anyone with eyes to see could have a field day analyzing it)… Looks like a brain (I honestly don’t remember drawing that consciously). I noticed the eye on the left, and since the occipital lobe is in the

back if the head – this made me look at the visible part I drew here as the right hemisphere of the brain- which is credited with much of the creativity we have. So kind of like this is representative of my right brain… Just interesting to me. Now RUN! LOL. I don’t, for a second, claim normalcy!
