old school warfare

old school warfare p96_opt.jpg


plaintive lobotomies
stairwell exhaustion
docile pharmacology
the echo
     somewhere below
                         certainty
longed for hopelessness
play nice, share your toys, stop overanalyzing

all words, including title, from page 96 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #85 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #14 for National Poetry Month.
