    I wonder if this is a womb
    or more like a tomb
    in which I exist with a waiting
    headstone and head phones
    to hear my eulogy read to me

    Is this really rain falling or
    amniotic fluid and if it is
    either / why does it burn?

    We all exist with an umbilical
    cord invisible being fed
    whatever our environment
    chooses to put on our
    plates...

    a lot of times becoming fed up

    that's why I carry a bottle of
    ipecac with me in case I need to
    induce vomiting...
    ...sometimes I choose to "throw up"
    so my mind can "grow up"
    and not be stunted with fare that
    doesn't appeal to me...but

    goes down cause I have my
    mouth open...

    learning is inherent
    curiosity is natural
    so we all walk around with our
    mouths open and umbilical cords
    attached...

    I find that sometimes people eat the wrong
    things and let them become
    cholesterol packets that
    clog the thought passages and
    live...just waiting to go into
    an "arrested state"

    (I wonder if they know that
    less than half of society is CPR
    certified)

    I am of the opinion
    even if you didn't want it that
    it is a

    travesty when it becomes
    easier for people
    to just be a "physical mass devoid
    of critical analysis" and accept
    whatever is fed them on silver plated
    wooden spoons

    living a splintered reality while
    burning under acid rain and yelling for
    help but not being heard
    etching their pain on the headstone
    that this life has provided them
    because they have chosen not
    to eat in moderation.
