Barking Up My Tree

Don’t take me seriously, please
Take me with a grain of sandstone
A geologic sediment of inter-galactic sludge
Take my human heart and see the contradictions
Look inside my head and see the trains of thought explode
The flights of hypocrisy that cross in convolution and ignorant


Boxes that won’t open with logical keys
Oh please, don’t take me


I am of a species that will not adhere to the rules of a literal wit


So just sit back and relax and enjoy the show
Admission is free with an open mind.
