Multiple Personality Disorder
When the mysterious'They' finally do decide
to administer the necessary tests,
questions as quizzes
designed to trip me up,
or better yet to expose me,
they come away bewitched, bothered and bewildered.
My answers don't add-up
to that which is considered normal.
It appears I am on the cusp
balanced precariously between in and out.
I have given two sets of completely different answers
to the very same questions,
and since I am not bi-polar
they assume I must be suffering
from a multiple personality disorder.
Based on my horoscope
her multi-dimensional sublime posture,
a subordinate solar influence,
and the humility of her horse latitudes
cause an infinity of tides to swell.
mysteriously she sweeps with a broom
the moon towards the sun.
the magnetic oceans follow suit
by swinging invisibly upwards;
they fill the parched sky
