Is that road rash is a problem for skin.
Why was I naked in the middle of the road at noon?
I’m glad you asked imaginary other half of this conversation,
I have no idea.
Some characteristics of bipolar disorder are:
dissociation, hallucinations and fugue state
So sometimes I wake up in places I didn’t go to sleep.
So, there I am nude, splayed out on a car like a slutty chicken
Screaming about the government conspiracy to take away my feet.
Not my real feet, just my brain feet.
I’m about six inches away from the concrete when I realize
In slow motion, like the exact opposite of a rhinoceros attack
This is not how I imagined my life would turn out.
When I was little, I broke both my ankles jumping off a roof
Because I was sure a cape would enable me to fly.
My parents attributed this to my strong imagination
Last year, my therapist called it a delusion.
I fail to see the difference.
Also, I really can fly, and see the future, and make stupid people leave coffee shops… 43 percent of the time.
Sometimes I see people as colors, this guy in the front is purple
Which means he just got a promotion
Or a blowjob.
A blowmotion, if you will.
The point is, here’s a list of things my brain has told me to do:
Join a cult
Start a cult
Become a cabinet maker
Kill myself. So, in essence, become a cabinet maker
Break into and then paint other people’s houses
Have sex with literally everyone who reminds me of my mother
Fight people who are much fighty-er than me, like the cops
So in essence kill myself.
I think a lot about killing myself.
Not like a point on a map, but rather like a glowing exit sign
At a show that’s never been quite bad enough to make me want to leave.
You see, when I’m up I don’t kill myself because, holy shit; there is so much left to do.
And when I’m down I don’t kill myself because then the sadness would be over
And the sadness is my old paint under the new.
The sadness is the house fire, or the broken shoulder
I’d still be me without it, but I’d be so boring.
They keep telling me that seeing things that aren’t there is called “disturbed cognitive functioning”
I call it having a super power.
Once I pulled over on the 110 freeway and jumped out of my old jeep
Because I saw it burst into flames 20 seconds before it actually burst into flames.
I knew my girlfriend and I would be together because she turned bright pink the first time she saw me.
I know tomorrow is going to come because I’ve seen it.
The sunrise is going to come all you have to do is wake up.
The future has been at war but it’s coming home so soon.
The future looks like a child in a cape.
The future is the map and the treasure.
The future looks just like gravity
Everyone is slowly drifting towards everyone else
We are all going to be part of eachother one day.
The future is a blue sky and a full take of gas.
I saw the future
And in it, I was alive."
