The key to happiness is to always be fucking something


.


I am incapable
of suffering
because I let it
go only to a certain point

where
arrhythmia is a tremor,
a Malthusian catastrophe
less solvent than snow.
The renegade who serves
my synapse sequences knows
this, and she develops fevers
to quell my dependence on
our forest of censored souls.

Mine is a passive immunity.
She makes tsetse flies,
fills them with blinks,
and releases them as impulses
that vaccinate my love against
the hurting. I'm not so deep


.


and I know nothing of suffering.

"I don't believe it matters to me- that they're going to destroy it. Maybe it hurts so much that I don't even know I'm hurt. But I don't think so. If you want to carry it for my sake, don't carry more than I do. I'm not capable of suffering completely. I never have. It goes only down to a certain point and then it stops. As long as there is that untouched point, it's not really pain."

My snapshot reaction to this: you may not know suffering, but you give it the reverent respect it deserves, while maintaining a healthy defiance of it. I like the self analysis you allow.

Thank you! I try not to analyse myself. I think I'd lose it. :heart:

but you do analyse yourself - your poems betray you like a loose mouthed therapist discussing the vagaries of her patients' subconsciousness over shots with her friends on a saturday night. that's one of the things i love about your art. :hug:
