I Had Too Much to Think Last Night

An overdose of existential dulls my cognition

Unraveling a thread from a neuron knot

Stretching it endlessly around the cosmos

Floating above it all, a visceral astronaut


Newton says we will fall back to Earth

Tumbling thru the gray matter of the mind

Concentration drifting as synapses fire

A Technicolor rainbow but I’m color-blind


My brain has a mad scientist in control

Can I slow the speed of mentation?

Bypassing the rational imbalance

Searching for an oasis of sedation


No switch to halt overflowing brainwaves

A confluence of mental images pulsate

Clock hands slowly drizzle the minutes

An avalanche of dreams anxiously wait
