Psychiatrist taps patient on head and says: 'Have you tried turning it off and turning it on again.'

Therapize me
Socialize me
Sanitize me
Prophesize me
And I will be there
To create some sort of design
For her meaningless expressions
And I will be there
To manifest silent animus
Towards her flagrant love

Categorize me
Emphasize me
Prioritize me
Memorize me
And I will be there
To problematize your remembering
And dance in the face of fervent divas
And I will be there
To sulk in the moonlit kisses of your embraces
And re-emphasize your star-dazzled smile
And I will be there
To miss you in dense forests
And break up into pieces at the edges of the galaxy

Backwards glances

Laconic grimace

Ichor lactation

Googly smile

Grinding senses

Hyper articulation

Subtle scents

Bubbling brain

Embracing void

Broken bottles

Fractured thoughts

Waiting for apocalypse

Waiting for loose change

To fall on the pavement

Like rain

 

face

Awful lawful machinery of conversation
Turn and counter turn
Speaking and the waiting
Nonverbal gestures and face expressions
All in sync and so confusing
A dance to which not all are invited
But just to live you need to communicate
We are social animals
Some of us aren’t set up for it
But we are social animals
Some of us fall asleep in empty beds
But we are social animals
Some people dream of imaginary lovers all night long
As we are social animals
Some cry themselves to sleep each night
As we are social animals

And when the moment comes
A pretty woman smiles at you
You’re at a loss for what to do
Your boring nice-guy bullshit doesn’t cut it
Your recitation of your tedious life and mundane hobbies sink into dust
Your questions are deflected or irrelevant
You cannot do the conversational dance of flirting
And some honey-tongued Lothario will swoop in
And take her away

insanity (1)

So deranged and kind of strange
So hard to try to rearrange
Bent and twisted out of place
Always I am off my face
When I’m aching in the wind
The bind that twists the bind that cuts
I’ve never felt quite so alive
Until I saw your midnight smile
Maybe we can wait a while
Now you’re gone from dropping pills
You cut yourself off from all who knew you
Never woke from sleep
And died alone
While I try to rearrange
The vampires that bend my brain
Into some sort of order
Take stock of my paranoia
Call my very indulgent employer
Stare out into infinite space
I will never know my place
Like you in death I am alone
I think I’ll have another cone
