degenerate

The stench of menthol cigarettes saturates
my hoodie
but you act as if I had a choice
my actions
are not dictated by some innate cognitive
recognition
but rather, driven by my unconscious
desire to fulfill the evolutionized
brain; overreacting by overacting chemicals
stimulated by the oversaturated noise of life;
attempting to dull them into a lull
so that
for
just
one
night
I could sleep

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
