Some
remain lost
in the middle of
pain and pleasure.

It is
in this palace
of misplacement
where fearful
interpretations
compose
cacophonic
rhapsodies
of reality.

They
are so lost
that they
tell others
what to do
and how to
believe
in order to
feel safe.

No one is safe.

What is the “mind”?
What are
mental chains?
What are
small changes?
What is love?
Is love unified
with freedom?
What is freedom?

Don’t reach out
for the rusty
dictionary;
better open
yourself
by playing
with the ball
of slippery
thoughts,
until
the mystical
number
is exposed
by being
the truth.
