Schizoid Polypath

Yes. Poem has muscles, no flab.

Imagine paranoid schizophrenia evolving

as Right-hemispheric dominant bipolarity

living in a stress-filled ecosystem

of dismaying relationships

with human natural systems,

family and those other aliens.

Now imagine paranoid behavior’s function

finds an entirely natural schizophrenic response

to an abusive

marginalizing

institutionalizing cultural reaction against madness.

We used to call less paranoid bipolarity

shamans and prophets,

witches and medicine men,

wizards and sages

and wise old crones,

messiahs and wise men,

mystics and hermits

pot heads and opium addicts.

Now we call such mediums

schizophrenic and really nothing more,

other than paranoid, of course.

We fail to remember that paranoia

is not

if “they” really have decided you are merely insane,

without any cultural value or merit.

For hyper-curious bipolarity,

a constantly stressing threat

of perpetual solitary confinement,

followed by voices screaming prophecies of doom.
