Cajun Mutt Press Featured Writer 01/27/21


I don’t really think
I’m bi-polar, but I
do think that it’s
slightly strange
how I can go from
wondering how to
make a noose to
wanting to dance
in the streets, in
the space of half
an hour.
I think ;
is this normal ?
But I know that
there’s no such
thing. It’s just a
concept invented
to keep people in
So, I try to accept
my own thoughts
and behaviour.
What else can I do ?
Except learn how to
make that noose,
and that’s never going
to happen.
I’d rather wait for the
men in white coats
to arrive, while I am
dancing on the
pavement to a funky
rhythm that’s just in
my head.
