the snake wraps round and round

no where to go

names called.... shut ups

coiled tightlly,

dreaming of institutions of insanity

but they were just fooling

with all my money-

i walked in- the fool

i always am.

everything i ever was

never existed.

people live like animals here

clouds of methenphetamine

( i can spell the poison)

greet me and my dying dog every evening.

the destruction of ego is complete.

i'm insane

or they're insane,

or both

but certainly i must be

for being here.

Just keep your spiritual and emotional distance love. Bide your time and one day you will have a peaceful place all your own that no one can contaminate. Love to Athena. Tell her I pray for her as I do you.
