Poet’s Showcase: ‘Your Mind’

June 6, 2010


The greatest dope in the world

Is not marijuana, or coke,

or heroin, or speed.

But the ability of our minds

To self delude,

to ignore,

to block out

What is happening around us

And to focus only on ourselves

Most of all to fear

The touch of another soul.

— Patrick Pritchard lives in Lawrence.
