don't know if i want my own insanity down in print *g* but  here goes...

i can see insanity from here

sometimes my life is so
out of control
that it is like doing
three sixties
on an ice blacked highway
where excitement reigns
a split second kingdom
before being overthrown
by panic and succeeded
by fear...
but there i will stop
for a moment
as you are probably
scrunching your eyebrows
with disbelief
and asking just how
would this writer
know that?
but i do.
because i did just
one cold dark night.
and so now
when my thoughts
take over the wheel and the
spinning starts
and reasoning says turn
turn i say turn
into the slide
you are losing control and
fear and i
grip white knucked at anything
at nothing at all
and each time around
the too fast approaching
of the Road Closed ahead
truck get closer
and the eyes frozen in fear
behind the wheel
and i are one
as we wait for the
crash and burn
the best i can tell you
don't stand too near
because i might not be there
i can certainly see
insanity from
