Escape

December 19, 2012

The voice in my head thinks like Malcolm X
but my thoughts escape
as if Pee Wee Herman
had said them

The voice in my head writes like Gertrude Stein
but my digital words escape
as if Grover Norquist
had threatened them

The voice in my head can take a photo just like Jay Maisel
but my photos escape
as if
I had taken them

The voice in my head is all-knowing
it’s aware of big words, math, and punctuation
it can even find Mogadishu on a map
but when my head voice escapes
it acts as if it knows
what I’m saying
