Thought balloons.

Thought balloons.

This week’s poem is by Dana Levin. I chose this poem because it’s whimsical and felt. It resonated with me as I have been trying to think my way out of a lot of challenges recently. The part about that someone with a pin relieving the pressure in my thoughts is a welcome visual.

Does your head or your heart need to lead you right now?

A Skull

Dana Levin

is like a house
with a brain inside. Another place
where eating
and thinking
tango and spar—

At night
            you lean out, releasing
thought balloons.
            On the roof
                         someone stands ready

                         with a pin—

Bad boss.

Bad boss.

Dance it in.

Dance it in.
