i am a thoughtless person
full of whim and not whimsy, pointless
and you give me epilepsy
with all your flashing lights, sensors buzzing,
sirens going off, drums in my head, drums
beating out a sound, rhythm of two,
iambic pentameter, flowing, flowing,
nerves vibrating in my head
making my vision blurry, even with that
i can't even open my mouth
for fear these butterflies will all
escape.
