somewhere
after
a day and a half
of fasting

a zone
of equilibrium
is attained

hunger pangs
cease

a strange
new energy
is sensed

as if
the frequency
of the universe
has been tapped
and the cosmic
vibrations
can be felt upon
the finger tips

buzzing
up and down
the spine

a free floating
sensation
that seemingly
disconnects
the body
from earthly
concerns

spurious
social subjects
are repelled
to the periphery

the elemental
source
of existence
lights a path
for us

choosing
to abstain
from food
can generate
such spiritual
connections

whereas
being deprived
of food
makes us feel
apart
from humanity

from divinity

and just
plain

fucking

hungry
