when the drugs start singing this way
my body hums in harmony
’til chemical synapses short-circuit
neurons mis-fire
the connections ex-plode
and my sanity es-capes

the song is always the same
“i’m  fucked…   I’m Fucked…   I’M FUCKED!”
bipolarity reigns
lithium ruins the tune
leaving me on my knees
singing off-key a capella

innocence flees
faster than my conscience
weeping won’t stem the tide
of  allusion…   illusion…   confusion…
swirling in and out of  reality
while the drugs sing on without me

“The Long Haul”   No

“when the drugs start singing this way”  is  from the song  “The Long Haul”  above

my  friend and  fellow poet,  Ainsley Allmark,  coined a phrase which i  feel describes this poem perfectly ~  “limite surréaliste”  ~ it  seems as if  it should make sense,  yet it doesn’t quite.  { i believe his definition is something bordering on the surreal. }  you can find Ainsley’s poetry at his main blog  ‘Dolphin Muse’   and at any of  the  ‘Dolphin’  sites listed in my blogroll at the bottom of  the page.
