people
from past lives
find me sporadically
through electronic means
prodding at me
from a distance
with sharpened sticks
of historical
histrionics

some
of these
strange deeds
I remember

none
of them
I can deny

my past
in part
is a strange
and ugly
dark silhouette
of insanity

at times
however
there were bright
full figured moments
of laughable
lucidity

I
sit here now
a sum result
of both extremes
still bouncing happily
between
the two

these days
though
those travels
are thankfully
less publically
displayed
