INFUSION
(7/30/11)


words

drip

slowly

stupidly

into

my
meandering
mind

as if
through
an IV

terms
of questionable
efficacy
sloshing
against
each other
in lettered
swells

sometimes
forming
frothy phrases
curling forward
in kinetic
fury

mostly
creating only
murky gibberish
breaking incomprehensibly
upon a beach
of babbling
synapses

nonsense
scribbled
in the sands
of consciousness
to be erased
by scrabbling
crabs
of conformity

salty editors
squelching
controversy

and
just a bit
of madness
