Lithium

Written January 11, 2010

trippin’ trippin’ trippin’
(over what?)
i think about a lot of things when i shouldn’t.
are you gonna give me lithium?
(esther greenwood esther greenwood)

let me do something i shouldn’t.
i wanna be two-dimensional and
only know sanity from not
reality from not
i only know sobriety
or not?

i’ve been higher and i’ve been lower
than you.
than you.

my head’s been in and out of the fume hood
but no volatile compounds have caused my trips
to the clouds and back
to Hell and back.

Why?—
Why”?

can’t tell you, billy pilgrim.
(are they giving me lithium yet?)
won’t tell you—
i haven’t…

i haven’t told anyone.
(but haven’t they found out yet?)
