immortality is desire. I take my share. the opportunist
me takes more upon the plaited dance of offerings.
Earth is constant renewal - reclaim. we cannot hide,
we will not be delivered. I happen upon my past and
remember tantric movement of mind, then memory
fails me. it comes and goes with shifting scenery:
what once was ocean is land. what once was land
is sea: I am alive and forever so.
