days like these
I want an exit sign
right there
on the ceiling
where I can

if I really want to

jump out of this skin
& leave the planet

to the insane
(both criminal
& not)

but that
in itself
lets me know

I belong here
with the rest
of the crazies

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    There are good and bad crazies, right?

    When I was in nursery school my friends and I had a little “box” where we would all crowd together. We actually called it “Crazy Corner.” My preschool teacher let us have this special place until one day Crazy Corner got too crazy and crashed to the floor with all of us in it. Alas, no more Crazy Corner.

    And it’s too bad because I have never had once since and probably would have benefitted from having another. Crazy Corner remains one of my favorite memories.

  3. Ha! Yes, know the feeling well – where’s the escape hatch?
