Knot in th
e Brain


      Is not the knot in your heart

      (Not the lump in your breast
      with its misery
      trivial)

      Is a stink with three pips
      and its bad self
      pumping

      Is a frog
      in your room frantic
      something is wrong

      Is a stain on your floor
      urging
      and begging

      Is a blot
      while you chase
      the ghost of its shape

      Is a fright
      wishing mass
      about to explode

      Is your life
      as you try
      being a dead

      (In a brain not the mind
      not a no or a yes
      is a knot)

      Is a god is a god
