NO SHIT
(3/2/18)

first
the laxative

then
the fast

then
the cleanse

we walk
around empty
for awhile

feeling
neither hungry

nor depleted

only a strange
sense of calm

of purity

a state
we have not
experienced
in quite
some time

fairly soon
we will have
to eat
again

start
the stinking
cycle
all over

but for
now

we stand
in the sun

warming
our elemental
particles

traveling
the beams
of light

leaving
these earthly
forms

nearing
our births

our deaths

a timeless
existence
that encompasses
both

all
the in between

all
the beyond

closer
to God

or just
to the next
piece
of pizza
