maybe: an endless loop of lost sanity

A YES,
and you feel the push
from the base of your throat
the temporary rise
of your self esteem.
The YES expands
your self, your world,
into several hundred can-s.

A NO,
may precede dejection.
Or secret relief.
For a NO
has several hundred versions
of debrief.
A NO is tricky,
A NO can deescalate
the beginnings of hope
with an end that’s stained.

But in both YES and NO
a box is checked.
It’s the MAYBE-s that block
the base of your throat
and make your self worth swing
across a murky jigsaw…
that may piece
everything
or nothing
and reflect an ambiguity
that almost kills
your self, and your world.
