this one

can you sense that

gut feeling

that your catching

feelings?

like kidney stones

developing

in all the wrong organs,

your world is spinning

in the wrong direction,

thoughts are as mysterious

as Banksy,

lasers aren’t breaking

this up,

i can’t fuck my way

out of this one,

i can’t drink my way

out of this one,

i can’t smoke my way

out of this one,

i can’t pop one

to get out

of the way

of this one,

so i take you

head on,

with head

and all,

so many innocents,

so many casualties,

and yet,

here we are,

taking our war

and suffering

to other unsuspecting

victims

with no end

in sight.

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.
