Are you sane

If I can just put these words down
the world may make sense
and I can stop pretending
that everything is rational
I will then be able to predict
which treatment will cure
and which disease is incurable
and which addiction
be it sex
chocolate
coffee
or cigarettes
will kill me

I'd like to know
the difference between
inspiration and a dose of insanity
and whether if I get a wish
if I wished I am God
that I'd just disappear
from within the cage cave
overlooking existence
to never reappear

These are all pertinent questions
to my toothbrush
but really, I'd just like to memorize
something, anything at all
that I wrote
that would explain why
my toothbrush is asking the questions
