Press the button for help
As those white origami doves are flying
Around my head
The tropical fish in the tank
Are on a loop
With that same bubble coming out of
The neon striped fish’s mouth
Right above the coral
As the harpsichord keeps playing
That same haunting tune, over and over,
As I keep pressing the button,
The lady in the blue pantsuit
Thinks I am seeing angels hovering
But I know better because angels don’t fly in a loop
And attack at that same point
In the harpsichord music.
I just want to go home to a cat and a face that I love!
They say I’m a hero,
But I keep pressing the button
And horrific faces fly off the TV to make me cry.
I can’t be a hero
As I dodge the bloody faces
And the paper doves spinning in a loop
While the coral and the fish are in the water
Bubbles are coming from my mouth
Music is repeating in my brain.
I need to stop pressing the button.
