pity the philosopher,
Her senses are hieghtened
Her emotions crash.
After resurfacing one area of mind
its neighbor fills with pinpricks.
just big enough to make her crazy if they aren’t fixed.
a stain on character, that is shared with the world
and she is uncapable of ignoring.
Translucent except with age,
it soils pages in so many life stories.
And here so few philosophers emerge
willing to pick up those grape juice thoughts.
