Monkeymind

I am on a roller coaster/ and I cannot get off

I cannot
stop
I am on a roller coaster
and I cannot get off
no matter how hard I try
the ride never slows
and I’m whipped in the wind
my mind out the window.

Here it is, monkeymind,
run-on sentences are friends of mine
like the endless marquee strung across
my eyes
they never stop going
just curious motion
that sets in motion
my endless
distraction.

Spinning, spinning
running free
wheeling with no autonomy
I cannot control its currents and eddies
using all my energy
to just keep my head steady.

And so on I go
on the endless ride
the tidal flows of my
monkeymind.
