PSYCHOSIS

I think I know what Psychosis is

— or at least I can try

to explain It, briefly —

as It happens to Me:

It, The Psychotic State Of Mind

AND

BODY*

is the intense focus on One’s

surroundings —

It is One’s Perception

and The Mind’s reaction to that

Perception

as I am caught now

 hearing The Peepers

and a slow car coming out

of a gravelled driveway

across the road

*I believe Mind and Body are interchangeable
