I’m more akin to the wind Than the stubborn wills of man. With an affinity for the formless, I sway about the days – Whichever way. Fierce but still, Bitter but warm, Embracing Without traces. The waters weep – Carried across To the other shore. Poet breeze, None have seen me Only that which I […]
What a weird fuckin’ question, right? I mean, who even asks things like that? Like most unasked questions, it’s somewhat important. No one really knows what the mind is, isn’t that weird?

There is much in life Too enjoyable for me to enjoy. Opium, ecstasy, cocaine; High-priced hookers, Exotic champagnes. Utter solitude On a mountain peak, Fields of bliss Oceans of peace.
