Drift Away

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…
nearby cities.

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.

Success! You're on the list.

Listen to “Drift Away.”
