sobriety

Sobered and cleansed;
I feel like a runt
in a herd of antelope
surrounded by lionesses:
No bravado
No braggadocio
No swagger

Sympathy
Empathy
Compassion
Sensitivity
I want none of it.
Feeling emotions
is a superfluous
ride through
outer-space
on a roller coaster
engineered by
Charlie Sheen

Give me emptiness,
sociopathic
mindfulness

Tear my heart out
or at least
the part of the brain
that ignites
these foolish
colorless
neurons

One more drink won’t hurt.
It can’t hurt!
And one more pill
with another pill
mixing it all
together
takes
me to a
roller coaster
engineered by
Hunter Thompson:
A ride
I
won’t try to
comprehend or

attempt to
understand
some deeper
meaning.

Bliss.
Bliss.
Bliss.

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.
