The Persistence Of Memory

We all hear the internal clock ticking,
A self-contained Doomsday device,
Melting like a candle in the desert heat

Shaded by our consciousness,
We try to ignore the Fun House mirrors
That manipulate our memory.

Our minds as flat as pancakes
Are screaming for persistence
And there's something that looks slightly like a deflated goose on the sand.

Our memories are not real
They happen to be past-tense fantasies
Reality souped-up on steroids

Hounding us like a dog
we bargain with memory
and give in to its demands.

Demarco's Secret

Energy Ions
Balanced Between Behavior
Moods Mistaken
Synapses Struggle Silently
Woefully Waking Up
Could be Contagiously Contracted
Positive Power
Negative Neurons
