i am here
in interlocked imagery,a cascading of falling senses
a rapid kinesthesia, aΒ Β tumbling swirl of sensations
i outrun myself i pray
i corner myself i admit
i lead myselfΒ Β 
away from clamor, from bedlam
i do slow down
well, i try, i really do
from here,where the sea boils in cross currents of which ways
the tilted red buoy marks the spot
today it's only a warning ,not yet my grave
...small unsustainable rallies in the mornings
exhaustion by noon
its been a hundred plus days
of treading water
...i fight to keep pace
i practice and learn direct speech
there is no other way
but to reduce the matter further..collecting my strength
i will continue and not worry about my affect
how anyone might dare say
...please say nothing
simply to be heard
is enough
to be be heard
is all i ever wanted
