Spare Parts

Too many years
vanished from home,
fortuitous exploits that
could only damage
me—no spare parts for
enervated emotions,
the scars of dues paid.

I’m surviving instead
on energetic shifts and
a resilience hardened in
the kilns of insolence,
shaking off a past littered
with faceless villains
who would see me
dead—I surrendered to
the wind.

I cognized my calling
while destiny-skipping
across sacrosanct
boundaries guarding
omnium-gatherums of
karmic determined
imminent lives—but
none held my interest.

Foolish notions of
returning home.

“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.”
