One could be vapid, dance with mysterious
translucent dreams of sorrow and despair.
Slit wrists and trample life before it ever
begins, erasing oneself from entire grid.
Expulsion would be better than to bear
such a pan-full of negativity.
Much better that dream that swaggers out to greet
the dawn with happiness for shining miracle of life.
Stuns its possessor until she trips and spins, seemingly
drunk on positive pictures of delightful persuasion.

Notes: Been sick all week with Acute Bronchitis. Collected the words anyway, because I didn’t want to miss another week. Blaming my stuffed head, nose, even ears for the simplicity of my offering. Really hard to think.
