::imaginative introspection::

Imagine that all life is an illusion. All that exists is this moment. No past, no future, each memory, every plan, a part of the illusion. Life, in a photograph.

Do you like the image of yourself?

deep dark side

see here's the thing
the thing
its here

with wings dripping black with tar
and eyes
its eyes
drill straight into my soul

look away!
look AWAY!




HERE is the thing.

i cannot bear to speak about
cannot bear

courage.  courage.  courage.

look into those eyes.

i can do this.

the thing, subdued,
I leave the mirror.
To begin to speak to you.
