Manic Depression

Rate: 6 Flag

Listening to Manic Depression
I hide behind my shades
eat salade nicoise in the sun

Take in a woman spilling out
of her red cowgirl
dress – her boots up to her
dimpled knees

She sings Jimi's song slow
Bipolar - the frenetic notes
in my family anthem

One that probably began
on an Ethiopian plain
when gods still
sang to man

gods still sing to men, but men do not listen , for they know
it is all..
pathology..to hear voices..

well, all Truth told (dont tell anyone):
it is normal to hear voices, not only your own,
which everyone hears,
subliminally,
but also those whe make up our Superego or Id.


voices everywhere, but they are all you.
that is the reality we md's learn.
Yes, I like that Ethiopian plain...!
