How Depression Matches the Environment

Silky rain like ghosts
in a microwave with popping corn
in the house with open windows
two doors up, my puppies
seeking an imaginary intruder
actually holding the door,
and I mash my face
in the posh pancakes
before even giving butter
or syrup a purpose.

    Oh how your mind hum’s. Am surprised you didn’t work in Ketchup on Truffle.

    By the way. You still have me mulling over a ‘warm brain’ from the post ‘NaNo Etude 3 – Bright North and Big Decisions’.

      Thank you for your kind comment. I feel rich. And I too have been wondering how I can get my brain to warm up better!

    Is depression matching the environment a cause or an effect?

      It’s both of those plus it’s its own animal!
