at this moment my brain…

at this moment my brain…

feels like it has been ripped from under my occipital bone
restrained to an office chair with zip ties
placed into the middle of the flashing rainbow floor at studio 54
trying to catch flickering floating lights
pounding bass makes the chair hop across the disco
following the white rabbit whose conversation is slurred, squeaky and endless
no hole to bound into
no window to fly out of
complaining is useless
medication duck taped my mouth shut and i can’t cry
turn down the volume in my head
get the bartenders’ attention
