Rough but churning.

_____________________


Swimming on solid ground, or
Walking through deep water
(if) It's all the same
     in a head game--
That's what the mind's for,
Clouding up actions
     'til clouds gather
     in overreaction
     and second-guessing spasms
Rain down on motivation--
Drowning the deepest chasms
     'til heads are swimming
     the world upended
     hair distended
     compass falters,
Until no one knows if they are
Swimming on solid ground, or
Walking through deep water.

Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 8/3/2007
Well written! Enjoyed the comparative confusion of standing on solid ground or walking through deep water. To be or not to be motivated....

Be safe,
Karen
