I wish to say farewell
to all trivial considerations,
all venal and self-serving dreams,
all of ego’s darlings
piled up like so many useless magazines
cluttering the thoroughfares of the mind.
I wish to terminate the leases
of all the shabby and unwanted tenants that
occupy the precious real estate within
my neuronal wonder.
I wish to finally release all the hostages
reminiscent of bygone desires and
they take far too much succor to retain.
I wish to welcome all of
life’s truly wondrous aspects,
of nature’s magnificent presence
and finally let all of existence consume me
within the grasp of perfect peace.
