time spent in an elevator

I will carve across my forehead
“I LOVE ALL THE PRETTY TECHNICOLOR
WHIRLWIND PEOPLE”
and parade around and through
a street or two.
I will spin in jagged circles
to take the world’s mind off of everything
and my mind too.
If I already have the weight of the world
on my shoulders,
then why should I be afraid?
If there’s is already immeasurable pressure
crushing down on me,
then what fear should I have in my heart?
O! my heart!
In you reside pretty, flying things.
But, O! my head!
In you resides fire.
It is a fearful balance,
but what is more fearful is
that I will be carried away,
or that I will be consumed in flames.
