Just Try To Explain These Poems

by M. Douglas Hoss

Just try to explain these poems,
If you can,
Even though I don't
Understand them myself.
But don’t try hysterically,
At any time of the day,
Or huge migraines
Will enter your nightmares
To feed your pain.
My advice?
Follow me into the rain
For relief, relief!
Then gentle love.
Nothing else, nothing
Will ever be as important.

"Moments of Temporary Sanity" by M. Douglas Hoss
