Get a grip

scatter brain
scatter gun
shattered pieces of existence
like shell-shocked debris in the corners
where is the super glue
that will put this humpty back
together

Although, on the surface this seems to be relating to absent mindedness that strikes the best if us, the usd of the phrase scatter gun, gives it a darker meaning. To me at least, I am reminded of sinister events, the verse evokes a feeling of a schizophrenic mind. In truth, this may not be your intention, but, poetry is all things to all people, enough to say, I like it. But, I refuse to just say that in a comment, or something as lame ad "nice", shoot me if I ever do! If I knew how to bookmark, I would.
