Artist's Description

what if my sanity was my insanity?

what if I never made sense to a world
that has no sense of direction
because it broke its axis
ignoring the moon?

what if I let my mind go
and never bother calling it back
because I don’t understand
where the hell I’m going

what if I’m crazy
and savagely raw?

what if I’m dark
running-in-the-haunted-forest dark
and
strange
wide-eyed strange?

what if I laughed like Beelzebub
and you never knew why
because you looked the other way
when I turned my mouth inside out

what if I became a wild lion
at the call of the savage sun
and you heard my heart beating faster
than the pounding of a million mustangs
tearing the earth in half?

what if I let my mind go…
and you never knew why?

and in the end
I carve up the darkness
because
my sanity is my insanity
