Connections (Draft 1)


Connections, that is the mystery.

It’s hard for me to be comfortable with
something beyond language
and ego-centric understanding, because

feeling is like a loss of self
where the chatter fades, and
control is lost into
starry-eyed observing of one’s own
reckless dream
unfolding as if It were me with bells on,

but I like bells so much that
when you ring me, I can see how
we could put our egos in a blender
and eat chocolate
