my myopathy

thickened ventricle walls
push the pressure higher
creating the condition
for extra beats per measure

sometimes that extra beat
silences the main bass line
stopping the flow of sound juice
to the thinking center

loss of thought leads to
unconsciousness – out of body
experience – collapse – collision
with Earth – bones breaking

thin the blood flow – cancel
the signal of the errant beat
