Riding the subway

Riding the subway, my buzz is starting to falter.

I took a hit after work to hold me through, but maybe I miss-judged the potency or the dosage because I’m drifting up through the levels of awareness.

I’m dangerously close to seeing.

I don’t care to see, just drift from work to home in a fog. Seeing is awareness. Awareness of the humanity around me.

I wish to remain oblivious.

I see a boot, a rain boot brightly colored I glance up and it’s a girl.

I don’t do well with humanity, it’s chaotic and wet and sticky. I work with machines. They are predictable.

I used to be normal, or pass as normal at one time. With a family and kids and a wife, then something happened and I changed. Now I prefer machines.

I’m in trouble, I can feel it welling up inside, the awareness, the walls of humanity are pressing. The smells the textures.

God help me…,

    Why? No one liked this piece. It passed into my blog completely unremarkable. What spoke to you? I liked this piece. I wrote it in DC while riding the metro with all the politicos whom my taxes went to fund. At rush hour, wishing I had a more glam job.
