"OFF" Prose by Gabriel Thomas

"OFF" Prose by Gabriel Thomas

Stay off center.

Keep to the edges.

Comfort kills slow but kills COMPLETE.

Your mind goes first:

a numbing narrowness.

Then the body:

a fattening chemical dependence.

Don’t worry.

You'll  be too deadened to care.

 

Push back

Escape

Fight or Flight

Their ploy is Self-pity,

It's our GREATEST flaw

 

Hang on

            Hang in

                        Hang for

                                    Hangover

 

Time's limited

Time's unknown

Time's illusion

There is only NOW!

Live there

 

Reason can work

Reason can be scary

Reason can be TRUTH

Reason leads to insanity

Be quiet with your reason.

Use it,

but don't let people know you have it

It's like a Bull's-eye

 

Stay Shadowed

Live on the edges

Self-pity is self-victimization

 

The world owes you nothing.

You don't owe it shit, either.

 

Any ORDER is false.

We're in an abattoir.

Didn't ya know?

 

In the chaos,

do what you want.

Time's up.
