stepping toward satori, pt. 3
ohnosynapse

so ive been thinking lately
 1
in verse like i had
 2
a sketch pad for a brain
 3
ive stood in places
 4
long enough to grow roots
 5
 
 
no motivation
 6
try to connect
 7
my index finger and thumb
 8
eat something if they touch
 9
something light
 10
 
 
hey birds fuck
 11
because it feels good
 12
one told me so
 13
chest puffed out real big
 14
i am not intimidated
 15
 
 
i dont have a problem
 16
with the every day
 17
it treats me well but
 18
leaves me time to
 19
come up with questions
 20
id rather not have thought up
 21
 
 
voice in my head
 22
said never let them know
 23
what goes on in here
 24
when i close my eyes
 25
its nothing but
 26
random number generators
 27
 
 
i dont imagine ill be
 28
sleeping on the floor
 29
any time soon
 30
one, my ribs act
 31
like a bad support system
 32
i picture a rocking chair
 33
made of bone
 34
and when i sleep on my back
 35
lucid lucid lucid
 36
im getting a text message
 37
from a house with three windows
 38
no doors, telling me to turn around
 39
its lonely well fuck right
 40
but im trying to sleep
 41
 
 
hard headed
 42
expect a ten minute lag
 43
between my synapse jump
 44
while i decide whether
 45
its worth the electricity
 46
 
 
static cling
 47
like im hugging
 48
a pile of nonexistance
 49
so why do i feel
 50
like im in motion?
