EN FUEGO
(12/14/18)


I feel
great

fantastic

fully
aware

completely
connected
to the universe

a feeling
that used
to require
alcohol

or drugs
for me
to attain

now
the sensation
comes over me
for no reason
whatsoever

at all sorts
of odd
times

probably
the definition
of grace

I know
from reading
that meditation
would probably
get me
to the same
place

whenever
I wanted

but meditation
is a lot
of work

and not
the kind
of work
that pays
the mortgage

I still live
in
the world

I would
prefer
to keep
my house

my sanctuary

for now
I think
that I'll just
enjoy
these momentary
immortalities
as they occur

hope
that they happen
more often

stay
longer

and not
think about
them

at least
not
too much
