THIRD EYE STYE
(8/17/18)

slow
your breathing

meditate away
the houses

the businesses

the factories

the vehicles

the aircraft

the streets

the utilities

the municipalities

all other
humanity

then concentrate
upon what
remains

experience
the naked flesh
of reality

you need
not
seek isolation
in order
to isolate

"but what
would we do
then?"

she asks
before we
can even
quiet
ourselves

bored already
she'll never
understand
what I see

I tell her
to put on
her shoes

that I'll
take her out
somewhere

in
seems not
an option
