Toroidal

everyone makes
                              talk with me,
        no one groks
                 who I am—or
                             even could,

according to 
                               probability 
        paradigms built
                 upon the
                               absenteeism

principle of
                               volitional
        disinterest 
                 in anything
                               beyond what

frivolous
                               observers
        calculate as
                 requisite to
                               lightning-fast

gratification, the
                             inconsequential
        micro-rushes 
                that keep
                             them chasing

“what’s next”,
                             or caught in
        a toroidal 
                vortex of 
                           atavistic triggers,

habitually
                            regressing into 
        pejorative 
                onslaughts
                            directed at

 
vulnerable hearts,
                           satisfying a
        reckless crave
                to dominate
                         something

 

       I know them all

“It is highly common for individuals to become frustrated while striving to learn about and live a spiritual life. Most of the disappointment is incidental to false or misperceived concepts of spirituality. Entry into the dimensions of spiritual sensations is conditional on the mastery of the moment. Spirituality is not a spectator attraction.”
