It’s impossible to say how long I’ve been here. Hiding. They dismiss and judge. Would you avoid? Do we deserve? Frozen in a constellation of moments forever. Happening all at once and never. Each page a slice of motion with no choices. It occurs what must be done and I’ve already begun. Sidestepping ramparts of consciousness. Picking the lock of awareness. Skipping the tedium of argument. Pain is the real enemy. Death is the real enemy. For a moment there is peace. A sense of freedom and empowerment. A way to accomplish the two objectives. The holy grail of paths. A useful paradox.
