Lyme Disease and Lovers

My fourth chakra swells
and thumps in strange ways

I’ll adjust I’ll adjust I’ll adjust,

it beats at 3am or
just past 10

There is no rhyme or reason
maybe a rhythm but that’s
some other vibration

My mouth howls
for… for… for
the fog to clear

For a moment of art
to come tumbling into my arms

like a lost lover with no where else to turn

there she would sit and stare

until I make her into the masterpiece
she’s been begging for the world to see
