clinical

there is a sine wave that follows the clinical chemical wake of emotional response
her deep brown eyes
caught mine
from across
the smoke filled haze
of too many
drinks
too much
smoke
too little
concern

i followed that wave
unerringly
a cartoon dog on the scent
of a steak
have you ever known
your doom with such precision yet were
unwilling
unable
predisposed
to dive head first
off that cliff

there is a sine wave that culminates in an infinite loop of self hatred to the core
she saw it
reflected
in my hazel
restraint
as flickering self awareness
fled
to the bottom
of another
empty glass
again
