there is poison in that needle

there is poison in that needle
but I am already strapped
down to this gurney, I know
what comes next, but I have
never experienced it before

lightning from the electrodes
goes shooting into my brain
electric fingers pinch, poke, and
prod all they can reach, stirring
the gray matter around breaking
down the dearest memories,
leaving others in tact, there is
no rhyme or reason which it is
