no longer a distraction

I’ve been without a head
for quite a while now
and to be honest I’m starting
to get used to it

I’ve no idea if people have been staring
[since I’m unable to see]
but something tells me they are
and I could care less

I keep hearing the same questions
like what it’s like to always
have my head in the clouds
of the more obvious
have you lost your head man

of course I don’t answer
[I mean how could I possibly answer]
instead I go about my business
as if it’s just another day
and all those around me
are simply a past tense distraction
