When you are you
the world rolls over and orgasms at your feet.
This gets embarrassing as you walk down the street,
so sometimes perhaps best to pretend
you are not quite you.
But don’t get lost
in that subtle pretence.
When we all pretend
to be not quite who we are, the world ends up full
of people pretending to be each other’s reflection,
and the world can’t reach the holy peak
where dissolution of all separation and pain occurs
and the world decides to go out to a bar for the night.
