my brain is growing vines
tendrils of rust
oxidation of knowledge
cobwebs on the farthest corners
spreading inward to the center
it’s lonely in here
though all these people linger nearby
wisdom seeks to destroy me
or seeks to defy me
skeleton keys to unlock my skull
and peer inside
frightening things float
around pretty things
ghosts of memories
liquid floral displays
silver candy cactus
to prick the skin
bring blood stains
unlovely smears
reflection in mirrors of sugar
lick my own frown
taste the sweet shame
then shatter the evidence
shatter the memory
send it into oblivion
then watch as it returns
like a boomerang
