I’m Not Mad


Like Diogenes the Cynic, I maintain
That I am not insane.
My brain is just wired differently than yours,
I see and experience things
In a somewhat different way.
Not better, not worse: different.
Perhaps I see things you cannot,
Notice what you’ve overlooked,
But you see things I overlook.
Imagine what we’d see if we looked together.
