Treasure Island

jason brierly


Crazy is as crazy does.


Jason, you're so crazy' I hear so often..
I know I'm crazy though..
Does one cease being crazy,
once they realize they're crazy?
Or does one simply embrace insanity
at the point of 'crazy embrace'?
We'll find out..
In this style 51/50..
society labels the awake as crazy
because the smart seem insane
to the dumb.
But what happens is that the crazy do,
while the sleeping masses don't..
I know, so I do..
they don't,
so they don't..
I'm taking my leave of absence today..
Taking a nut ward sabbatical.
Going to confir with my associates.
The 'good shepherd committee'.
Call it a state of the equilibrium meeting.
I will return in a few weeks with my
'State of equilibrium address'..

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
