Unalterable,
like the colors
of yesterday’s sunset
the Past holds me captive.
Reinterpretable, forgettable,
memorable; unchangeable,
aspirated.

Two roads diverging.
It’s Now o’clock in the Here.
Aware or unaware I breathe desire,
filter and collate my perceptions.
Acting and reacting in illusion
or realization or Realization.
Eatsleepmatedefend and/or?
Hankering and lamenting

Uncertainty
Branching continuity
Possibility and Probability
Cessation of inhalation
Soon a leaf adrift

Namo brahmanya-devaya

jagad-dhitaya krsnaya
govindaya namo namah.
