The Audio’s On

Since I had a stroke, old friends have assured me
That I sound all right, quite normal, but I doubt.
I hear it wrong; maybe it’s just a feeling from inside my brain
That can’t get out and that no one else can apprehend or sense.
The audio may be normal, but the brainwaves are suspect!

Perhaps my mind was always like that—like this—and no one
Ever knew what attempts at control were occurring there,
Though I certainly thought I did.
Maybe there were always connections
That I felt were obtuse or loose, askew or awry.

It’s sliding away from me,
Even when I don’t know what it is.
Am I lazy or just tired? It’s hard to tell.
I used to be lazy,
But it was nothing compared to this.
