Read Poem: CLARITY, by Arden Lassalle

If only I could see
with a mind without
Distractions.
what would I see
would I see me
what would I do
would I take a knife
and then take a life
would I see
clarity
Would I be
Free
Or are the distractions in our
lives the only thing keeping
us : alive, awake, moving, and Breathing
I Care not to Care
but by not going there
Am I impaired?
a Pair of pears
leafy limbs, barky trunk.
dangling tucked
Together
the two
Their branches Bonded
and
the
Bonds of time
simple as a pear
unravel when we Sleep
we escape
Reality when we sleep
Why steep in sleep
Revel in a bottle
waggle and wiggle
giddily giggle
Your awake,
drone
Your senses to sleep
Don’t Be Weak
Don’t Sleep
Keep to your feet
Drink and you can
Sleep Then
Forget
I forgot if it was
worth
Remembering
anyways.
Is any of it?
Worth anything?
at all?
