BIPOLAR – MIXED STATE by Nina Dillon Mania is not wanting the sun to set. Depression is not wanting the moon to go. Either hate the night, or comfort in it. It’s coming all the same. White pearl hanging on black neck. Pulling at my psyche – and tomorrow may be mixed. Gas and brake. Knife and needle.
