A Fraction Of My Mind


Figure Eight, 1952, by Franz Kline





















Encircling
Intertwining
Thoughts

Forming a figure 8
Within the confines
Of my complicated mind
Although unfocused
I watch them form shapes
I don't want to understand

But...
They most certainly understand me

Hello... they breathe
As I shift my eyes
So they won't know
That I know
What they want
