False Evidence Appearing Real - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

It's just
the silence
Bouncing off
skull walls,
so quickly
it has a
life force
all its own;
to the centre,
right through
to the pain.
How easy it is
to submit
to this
of the mind
where all that
grey matter
gets to
shuffle the cards
and have all the fun
when, usually
nothing bad
happens anyway.
Might as well stand
on your
human head
and let your feet
do the thinking
always recognises
before your
wits do.
