I slip upon certainty

So I unravel


In the beginning,

Though I can't recall, I'm sure,

Therein lies my end.


I sat by water

As the sun rose before me

A Sandwich of Life


In expectations -

In their very subversion -

There lies the sublime.


Take lead from the Fool:

Knowing nothing, nothing hurts.

All is feasible.


What is worse than hate?

An ass, between two hay bales

Starving to its death


Clouded behind words

In time clouds pass, but so too

Does that which they shroud


A star darts away

Failing to see, all the while

It's already caught


Are humans that scared

Of a reality that

They cannot cling to?


Tracing the path back

Each day a new regression -

I find my future
