‘Group Ther­apy’


Our spines snap to fit
indus­tri­al chairs arranged
in a circle. Clones with
holes in our brains
mis­maid on pro­duc­tion lines 
that shape polite soci­ety

The cook­ie cut­ter sliced
holes in our brains that we
stuffed with booze and grease and pus
until it dribbled out our ears.

We’re here to piece togeth­er
jig­saw day­dreams to
plug the holes in our brains 
with affirm­a­tions and morphine
like duct-tape over heartache

The roof leaks. Droplets 
bur­row under our hair
through the holes in our brains,
leak­ing down our cheeks.

Some­times holes in our brains

are our only release.
