THE FALL

 

Is it wine that makes me feel light?
Is it the music?
I have heard that it’s a fluttering sensation-
It is flapping and chirping
on my inside,
in my solar plexis!

But why do they say the heart then?
I do not feel
it is where the heart is!
I feel it below
inside
In my loins!
Perhaps in my soul…intangible
Yet felt-
It tingles-
It tickles
my extremities even-

Almost nauseous at times.

I am nostalgic.
I do not mind.

I am cheerful;
I do not mind;

I think this means only one thing.
