On day 2 he was already sinking


There is always the madness that
stays with you,
comes out and plays with you
then slays you
and you think that it’s normal?

what then the siren that wakes you
and the men in suits that take you away?

Lunacy leaks in more than it drifts out,
it’s always safer to wear a filter,
a tinfoil hat as a blocker
and to keep a stock of
Dollie mixtures.
