Nerve Endings Unleashed.

Updated on December 11, 2009

 

Nerve Endings Unleashed.

 

Impulses control me,
my pulse is a

dancing jugular
threading it's
endless performances
between the

fine lines of balance
and a fatal drop.


Fermented things

tempt me,
but I abstain

with moderation
lest I wine too much.


I once smoked

the leavings
of southern field's

harvested
long white curls

of addiction
filling my organs

with toxins.


But now I chew gum
like a coffee grinder,
and drink coffee
strong enough to chew.


Women tantalize me
but they are impulses
I can often
get a handle on,
when they harden me
to their softness.


I run late most days,
dashing around in circles
gulping meals and then 

pedal to the metal
to save the time I've lost.


I am a nervous

tic who tocks
as I battle the clock
even this entry

was on impulse,
when I 've much to do
so I will leave you
with my worst

compulsions
compiled.
