Hearing the Insanity

I hear the air.
Circulation blasting
just as airplanes.
The special hiss at
lower volume and frequency
is what tells me,
this is insanity.

But some voice
or low mechanical
rumble reminds me
to be normal today.

The air stops, rests.
I can hear blood
bubbling in my temple.
Awake and insanity.
The popping
of blood bubbles
is perfectly about
what insanity
sounds like.

    Maybe it’s NOT insanity.

      That is something I have not tried to imagine. That might bring about some fear. What would it be?

      When I feel most sane, I feel mostly undisturbed – The opposite of this.

      AND thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate it.

    This is chilling, Carl. I guess we all have moments like that but you help me to imagine what it must be like in the long haul.

      Victoria, thank you for commenting. You are very kind. We know this is not forever, and that is a relief.
