housing thoughts

an intense thought

can immolate you from within,

reduce to cinders all else

but this one withering thought.

if it catches the passion collective

and becomes pedestrian,

you’re saved and awed.

if it is just yours or a handful yours,

it’s queer and frowned at,

stamped upon and quelled

at the earliest and most brutal.

you are discounted, unnerved,

eviscerated inch by painful inch

so that you’ll remember and yours too

what it is

to think along unfamiliar lines

and be vocal about thoughts.

is this 1984 all over again

where you’re blinking away


eager to disown

your own mind

if only they’d stop

it all in one large minute

and not stretch pain

to fit every dirty fold

of your reviled grey


what remains

are orphaned thoughts


for new homes

larger, younger

robust than you.
