Red Pain

Blood simmers to lunar
pulsations, expressing the
lineage of hard-earned
perspective—a formidable
muse when confronting my
decaying wreckage dragged
forward from earlier life.

Ancestral castles not in
my past—only dark spaces
and divergent intent until
no thing remained, evicting
distortions of an unborn
self too engulfed in red pain
I shrewdly befriended and
within those cavernous
depths, I found me. Mortal
fears vanished, swept away
in the thirty-two winds.

“The consciousness of a human being is a completed whole, but also an indispensable and inseparable element of the unified consciousness of the human species. Human consciousness enables the eternal communion with all knowledge present in creation.”
