Thoughts intricate
as simple doodles
on unwanted pages.

I admire the curves
that keep swirling.

This is insanity
but it could’ve been
an escape.

This is pretension
but the synonym
is survival.

And this is sanity,
not the usual,
but an abnormal one.

The irony is that
existence exists
even in non-existence.
