Have You Really Thought About It?

Thought murmurs in all senses

thought like a smothering filth,

mother of all insecurity,

seeps through five senses

and murmurs behind them in tune


to truly think

the murmur

is dead


the murmur

is gone inside the self


the murmur is going to eat me

the murmur just wants to end

when it ends


i know what i want


that sense that i’m an alien


taking notes

able to consider everything


as if it was one and only

a one thing


the murmur

is hiding behind me


the murmur stands behind my shoulder

open jawed

like acid trip



the murmur

is my own stupid life,

to die

in a century

and be nothing

sooner than the something ever



i have no sense of humor


this or

much else otherwise this is an extremely important



i earnestly want to

gain your sympathy


i earnestly want the ideas in my mind

to correspond


to you and each other

and to the

way they think they represent things


i earnest wish not to laugh

i am holding everything in


i am going to hurt myself soon


i am a robot


i can’t place reality,

but i can’t


the feeling


i cannot stand over top of myself

or stand over top

of anything


when i am lost

and then find it

i am


distressed by the answer

that is,


the lost is the good place

the found is

the problem i can’t ever



that’s pretty important

really, really, really
