Idée Heal Fix

Forged while in utero (the crucible concocting conception),
the fluke of biology begat
me – a happy go lucky boy, whose vulnerable uber travails
susceptibly sprung sly as Tennessee Williams hip cat
on a hot tin roof, where the faux pas survivalist diktat
burrowing into my figurative, elusive, and divisive gofer hole decreed éclat
where solitariness didst a ford being driven psychologically by obsessive fiat
a compulsion to grip tightly with distorted, dispirited and disgruntled guilt
evasiveness where schizoid personality disorder rudely rued the day halt
ting natural development of body, mind and spirit, a rampant insult
finding thyself as a kid alienated, deviated, and gravitated by jolt
like electric shock from how peers responded to knocked
down confidence, egoism, faith, et cetera within self locked
and linkedin to an identifiable causes (which said malady) – marked
by painfully being shy, debased fortitude,
and intimidation noted
prominently when thee papa found him walking toward me,
where he orbited
from the dark side of me noggin with no intent at harm, yet a portent
welled up inside within mine chromosomal maternal and paternal quotient
whereat this unease generated an unspoken radiant
cowering reaction training thyself crouch with silent
body language that bespoke volumes expressing torment
with nary a handy dandy blues clue (meaning xl plus years ago) only the unguent
of magic powers to disappear since silent springs restrained thee to vent
and only when this sole son started a family of his own and went
back to visit parents did a diminution sans cower take the shortest xing
in heyday of inferiority spurred (a veritable bee line back
tummy honey combed hive), or if feeling especially intense – a yurt
or pup tent, would answer the call of duty, to lemme carry on camping
and once inside precautions taken to close all the zippers.
