I felt terrible this afternoon.
Someone said I was drifting away.
I shrank back in my head.
I did shrink back.
I watched my mind flicker with images.
Then I decided to try and take Saturday off.
Take it easy. I don’t want to flip out, take flight,
and disappear into the sky. See the town from out there…
Get to the point where I can see the sea
when there are no clouds.
If I get so high, all these images will be flickering
in my head, and I will remember them on days
when I feel terrible and I’m drifting
away inside my head.
