"In the fellowship of the to be or not to be"

Between Us and the Sky

Smoke break in the lockdown psych ward was the public square
The agora of the insecure or overblown
Wherein each of us was crazier than each other
Exchanging our schizophrenic paranoias there
With each other mistaking us for Dad and Mother

And out of many one dysfunctional family
Wherein the unspeakable was fluently spoken
Everyone insane in pain where some someones remain
The garden of memory weedy and overgrown
There where I always knew I was and might be again

Where the brilliant and the beautiful go when broken
Going for broke in a haze of psychiatric smoke
As if we were on fire and who can say we were not
In twos and threes of dos and bes gone strangely awry
When anyone remembered then what no one forgot

In the fellowship of the to be or not to be
I was on a pilgrimage and some were in a rage
With everyone together and each of us alone
All of us alone together in our metal cage
With razor wire and chain link between us and the sky

well done

And we, each of us live in a cage of one kind or another
the question being who will release us a sister or a brother?
God bless,
