EXTRANEOUS APPARATUS
(11/12/15)


we feel
the need
to be free

from our
possessions

from our
notions
of substance

to abandon
all disposable
infrastructure

to see life
from a needs-based
perspective

once we
cast away
those superfluous
accessories

prioritize
our immediate
necessities

all of that
excess clutter
begins to clear
from our
consciousness

we see
the more essential
elements
of existence

we hear
the voices
of the earth

the heavens

speaking to us
again
as they did
when we were
children

we achieve
some sort
of material
senility

attain a more
metaphysical
mindset

we reassign
ourselves

others

to our proper
stations
in the universe

we possess
only
the warmth
of life

the hope
of another
day
to live
