It was honestly
Just a casual remark,
But it conjured confusion
That led to tiring explanation
And made me regret mentioning it.

I once wrote with clarity
Yes, clear I once were.
But coherence has left me.
I have sensed it ever since
The start of the year.

Oh this was something trivial,
It was meant to be a joke.
I guess I was just too hungry
And hungry minds don’t work.

Alas, this is definitely
Just another queer product
Of mindless overthinking.
