early morning poem

May 22, 2010

You go-go-go, can’t stop thinking/doing/moving all day

You shove/stuff it down-down-down where it seethes/writhes/wriggles

Clean-cook-shop-phone-laundry-kids and the day is done

You have avoided dealing with feelings/memories/alters/truth/yourself

You slip into unconsciousness

And it throws images/facts/people/places/symbols

And you toss-turn-moan-flail-awake

And it never went away

Because you cannot not know/remember it

Because you must see it and look at it and feel it

Again and again

Until it exhausts itself

    This describes the crazy, busy avoidance so well… and it’s consequences.

    Take care,
