I try

to steer this


Wobbly tracks to

keep emotions

in check.

I go full steam

can already see my body smashed like

whipping cream.

Straight tracks turn to bends to the left to the right uphill down a flight

of stairs?

Why’re there stairs I’m on a train! No my boy it’s just your brain spinning yarns to keep you sane pop some pills go to sleep wakeonthetrain

the days turn to nights turn to days turn to nights

the train goes choo-choo my days to blue-blue my thoughts to poo-poo I try to hold it in everybody’s telling me to throw the towel in they’re on my train I’m on my train I’m gonna crash it I’mgonnacrashitI’mgonnacrashitI’mgonnacrashit –

I fail

to steer this




so many
