Dazed and Contused


Dazed and contused

medicated haze.

Word spaghetti thoughts erased.

Thoughts translated jumbled train.

Words fall randomly like rain.

Try as I might sequential order,

evades my grasp

my sentence slaughtered.

String a sentence beaded words.

Let slip the string and lose two-thirds.

Words scattered bounce across my floor

Lost in crevices forever more.

Thought images flickered across my brain.

Expression captures my words in vane.

Smokey vision heat hazed sweat.

Remembered words I didn't forget.

Choking on words long since taught.

Medicated dazed.

Confused with thought.

Altered state alert of mind.

Struggling to read the simple signs.

Blunted blade of wordsmiths sword

Can't make the cut nor strike a chord.

Speaking in tongues tripped tangle tied.

Stumbled rungs up ladder high.

Daydream flight dream

clear vivid bright

awakened wet with sweat

in fright.

Dazed contused and medicated

Drooling bent smile

chemically placated.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
