Mind Jazz (For Jia Lin Cheoh)

I cannot stop my mind from thinking
Always working on something
Sparks shoot out of me like volcanic ash

Always been on fire, on target, on the hook
A creative junkie who believes in love and fear
The fear dissipates when I remember

Imagine you in the corner of a smoky bar
Listening to the mind jazz like a soft parade
Fever dreams are the best part of the trip

Many cities
Many lives
Many cats on a hot tin roof

Cannot stop my fingers from typing
Not even near a keyboard and my phantom fingers roar
Sound of nails on a chalkboard avoided like a plague of sexy robots on holiday

Charles Cicirella
