This is how your mind gets broken. It starts like most things. A crack. A worn spot. A sharp knock to the head. A sharp knock to the heart. There are so many ways to get broken, it’s amazing any of us work. Amazing we aren’t all in the shop begging the mechanic to buff out the scratches.
Shit deteriorates. Your brain is looking for ways to betray you. You hear warnings from the central nervous system. Fight or flight shit, but you freeze – trying to unravel the knots in your string theories. For a smallish ball of goop, the brain can be very, very loud. Mine screams at me sometimes. Sometimes, it is chill. Often, it is screaming.
Some people deliberately damage their brains. Ask me how I know. Most people do it by accident. The world is full of brain traps. You are constantly under assault. Breathing carcinogenic fumes and dodging Kardashian bullshit. Some people shut down the whole works. We feel bad for them, but maybe they found the fix they needed.
Brains ain’t simple, see? Not one damn bit. We don’t even really know how they work. We’re just glad when they do. Glad when we haven’t had so many concussions that life becomes the enemy. Glad that we didn’t spend our high school years huffing oven cleaner.
Shit smells gross and isn’t good for your demeanor.
I want to remove my brain and turn it into a punching bag. Do my fast work on the frontal lobe. Beat that shit senseless.
Is there anyone not broken? That’s a fair question, but it kind of depends on your definition of 'broken'.
