NONPOLAR ORDER
(5/10/13)


I get
pissed off
on a regular
basis
about absolutely
the slightest
of life's
irregularities

but
I also have
moments
of utter euphoria
for no apparent
reason
whatsoever

I have
hyper days
when I seem
to be running
a few feet

a few seconds

ahead

of my physical
form

at
other times
I drag through
the day
like a wet
mattress
across sand

during
sensitive moments
any harsh
sensory perception
can pierce
my brain
and cause
me pain

but
when I am
focused
no sight
sound
smell
touch
or taste
will dissuade me
for my designated
fixation

I'm sometimes
sad
and depressed

others
centered
and refreshed

I need
no doctor
to diagnose
my symptoms

I am
human

that's all

others
unfortunately
cannot keep
these peopled
oddities
to themselves

they suffer

they say

so they
complain

and when
they complain
to the right

or wrong

professional
personage

their diagnosis
and dosage
may be set
in stone
for life

I look
at them
as my equals
in every respect
except
for their need
to overtly share
their suffering

their joy

~

I keep
quiet

mostly

so seem
quite well

quite normal

so that
they will never
know

I could
kill them
all
