SCHRODINGER'S PAT
(6/20/19)


"what happened
to you?

you used
to be
so much fun"

sorry
to disappoint

I do
admit
that detained
within
a box
of drunk

the possibilities
seemed
endless

travel

adventure

loony bin

hospital

jail

and death
of course

you opened
the door
to me
never knowing
what might
spring forth

there was
always
great potential
for action
of some sort

now sober

I don't
need
the constant
turmoil

the stress
upon
my psyche
in order
to feel
alive

I am
quite happy
to walk quietly
down
the
road

alone

which
severely decreases
the opportunities
for amusing
anecdotes

for entertaining
endeavors

other
than that

I am
fairly much
the same

please
excuse
the sanity
