Ghosts proliferate here:
Fossilized memory remnants
Fuel the perpetual emotion machine.

Spectral-fed gears
Gnash their teeth,
Fed steadily on irrational fears &
Worst possible outcomes.

We think thousands of thoughts a day.
Each is a unique chance to let go of all these sticks
yet still I can’t sleep more than six hours
Without waking up to worry.
