Not at all, just tired and scattered. That poem borrowed from two sources, Elyn Saks, the brilliant university professor/scholar/ schizophrenic who has been institutionalized many many times. Go to TED Talks and hear her short presentation of her life, she's amazing.
My mother was committed when I was 16. We walked out in the courtyard and the building on the left, the third floor, had bars. Those were the criminally insane. It left quite an impression on me. I think this writing is just addressing some of my experiences.
Thanks for asking.


We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
