Limbo (a poem)

It’s a state of mind…

1
Sometimes it feels like
hunger

Sometimes it feels like
disease

Neither sneaks up on me
I ease into them
deliberately
but without deliberation

2
The human form is ripe
for exploitation

Within
Without

Fitted in between impulses
controlled by the oldest one of all

3
No flash required

4
Sometimes it feels like
this will end soon

Sometimes it feels like
this will go on forever

I resist

And I resist

Repeat and fade
