NaPoWriMo, Day 3

ReadWritePoem’s prompt for today is to write about something that scares you. The thought of losing my mind terrifies me. I wrote this in the hay(na)ku form.

Madness

A
Mind is
A terrible thing

To
Lose. Nonaligned,
Without defined margins,

Thought
Has a
Will that answers

To
None. Indigenous
And untrained imaginings

Gyrate
In, out,
Over and under;

Feral
Impulses trumping
Muted, docile networks

Of
Synaptic governance.
A pyrotechnic exposition.
