day after mania


open eyes, open
to the blue world
stay awake to look
around and see
what you did yesterday
in feverish amusement
drove 50 in a 25
laughed the whole way
spun out of control
10% cautious observer
90% wild, hungry
for sensation
color saturation
speed rain body touch
couldn’t get enough of
brash raw elements
10% sighed relief
upon arriving home
90% climbed the roof and
danced atop the skylight
stomping until it cracked
drip, drip, drip
open eyes, open
you are in deep
the ramifications
start now
