EASY DRY, EASY DIE
(1/5/17)

stay out
of the deep water
of this world

all of that
maniacal activity
may seem
like really living

but when
we immerse
ourselves
in attachments

possessions

people

they soak
into our skin

become
a part
of us

it's simply
a matter
of fundamental
purpose

not all
were meant
to participate

some observe

some isolate

if we only
dip a toe
into the pool
of this worldly
life

we are just
as alive
as the underwater
experts

the less
that we get
on us

the less
we'll have
to towel off
at the end
