Think: foreign

||: foreign thoughts
jumped in my brain –
refrain :||
A headache, right hemisphere pain.
Oy, - touching the head, -
this is not my “bread and butter”,
who is a narrator?...

Thoughts slates move
from left to right,
soft spots fingertips rotate
to fit in the whirl mesh
to open the attic,
to dissolve and smash
what is  negative…
temple to temple,
connect the dots
-   First line –
Third eye- between brows,
reach opposite side –
connect for
-   Second line –
Control room, driven in no time-
I’m inside sitting behind
my eyes as open windows
on an intersection of lines.

Create a red rose…open…discharge
the pain, disembodied voices…
breathe in-out…
Solution (for this time) – found.
