Stranded in the Doldrums


No longer able to think 

And think 

And think

But now I stare 

And try not to think 

And think 

And think

Holes drilled into the wall break

My train

Of thought

Remembering 

Fingers 

And teeth

And biting down

Hoping 

And 

Waiting

And being greeted by silence

And something worse than rejection

I still don’t fully understand

Changing the order of my molecules

Too much has shifted

No longer anchored 

My ship has set sail

I pray to God this crew doesn’t fall down dead

And leave me stranded

In the doldrums 

I swear I didn’t mean to shoot that bird down
