April 28, 2016: Great Insane

I am the Great Insane.
I am the bitch you banished from trace.
I am the child your inner bully controlled. 
I am the scar you wear under your masque.
I am the fear you feel when you see my smile. 
I am laughter.
I am the joy you delight. 
Watch me spin your wheel
faster, clock-wise motion
you took notion when the ticking
began, stopped;
tick, tock
beat is off
off beating in reverse pattern
shifting forward
back shift
cosmic repetition.
