Samsara is pain
Languishing dainty digits grasping
Clawing for that which cannot
Vapor on my crumbling skin
Am I losing my mind?
Or is this just a rapid climb
Into incongruity, an ordinary annuity
Unity in clarity, solidarity
A twist in a plot that you forgot
I think I ought not wrought what I thought
A vacant lot with a polka dot Windsor knot
I want a vacation spot, don't want a lot
Trying, and failing
