Tracing Racing Thoughts

1.

Before I could talk on the phone it had to be invented
the inventor had to be invented one day by his parents
this all happened before I was born to talk on my phone
phones are expensive but money doesn’t grow on trees
they say squirrels live in trees rent free that’s just nuts.

I asked my therapist on the phone today why I can’t stop
tracing my racing thoughts she said trauma causes anxiety
try placing my thoughts on clouds and letting them pass
trauma sucks it makes me sad that’s why I write poems
squirrels hate poems so what squirrels are fucking nuts.

Before I could talk on the phone it had to be invented
the inventor had to be invented one day by his parents
I was born to talk on my phone and make connections
this can be expensive but money doesn’t grow on trees
they say squirrels live in trees rent free that’s just nuts.

I asked my therapist on the phone today why I can’t stop
tracing my racing thoughts she said trauma causes anxiety
try placing my thoughts on clouds and letting them pass
trauma hurts to feel better I write poems squirrels can’t
read or write poems so what squirrels are fucking nuts.

Before I could talk on the phone it had to be invented
a higher power called the inventor to hear his message
I was destined to express myself with words other people
invented but words I learned recently don’t grow on trees
they say squirrels live in trees rent free that’s just nuts.

I asked my therapist on the phone today why I can’t stop
tracing my racing thoughts she said trauma causes anxiety
try placing my thoughts on clouds and letting them pass
to relax I’m writing this poem it’s almost finished squirrels
don’t care for poems to be honest squirrels are fucking nuts.
