Birds and Bells.

The blue birds sing.
I imagine the sounds
The door bells ring.

I’m hearing are birds
and bells and other things,
The blue birds sing.

but my psychiatrist says
the bells and birds
The door bells ring.

and constant ringing
and singing in my head
The blue birds sing.

is far better than cold sweats
and bone chilling nightmares,
The door bells ring.

but I stop taking the meds,
preferring not to hear
the blue birds sing
and the door bells ring.
