The Only Way – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon




“People don’t deserve the restraint we show by not going into delirium in front of them.”  Louis-Ferdinand Celine

The Only Way

I wanted to scream
to shut them up
but their mouths just ran on
blathering jibber jabber
in irretrievable time now
lost forever in a cloud
of noise that hurt my ears
and dulled my mind,
till I could take no more,
so I opened my own
and climbed in,
it seemed the only way.
