I was told
that I had unhinged my mind.
that they had decided
I had unhinged my mind
in a paranoid-schizophrenic sort of way.
that the punishment
for unhinging your mind
in a paranoid-schizophrenic sort of way
was anything up to
in a "mental hospital"
while your mind was drugged to a dead stop.
I saw on TV
a snake who had unhinged his jaw
to swallow a huge rat.
I worried about that snake.
I hope he realized
how vulnerable he was
lying there with his jaw unhinged.
I was afraid that some huge beast
which the snake had never even known existed
would come along and swallow up that snake
while he lay there with his jaw unhinged.
