It started in June


Spring madness usually means
women at white sales
not men in white coats.

"We thought it was just a bad trip"
A two-week walkabout in Seattle
sleeping on a courtyard couch
and conversations with Lucifer is
no one's idea of a vacation.

When the Haldol kicked in
she said it had been a fantastic experience
a revelation she needed to understand.

For a while, we could even joke about it.
How there must be something in the water at MIT.
A cartoon devil on one shoulder,
angel on the other.

That was 14 Junes ago this year.
Crazy has become a lot less funny since then.
