His eyes are ash and flame and junkie dreams,
his split-seam voice a screen from self-deception -
he has none.

He drags on his cigarette, and puts it out.
Ashtray-ash, an empty vessel.
He speaks:

"It is ash," he says.
"Bit it is also embers. It is easy to be
a turtle, or a snake, groundseekers, safe,
shelled and loving.
Be
a phoenix, though it is painful,
and fly true."

"If there is love, let it be love.
There is a time for for broken cups,
there is even time for sweeping.
There is no time
for mending."
I hope this is good, I hope you can use it. Is is existentialist drivel, maybe. Maybe it is what you needed to hear. Maybe you just like, or dislike, the way it sounds. I hope it enriches you. It is a strange mix of Nietzsche and Bon Iver at 4:35 AM. At any rate, let me know if you love it, or if you hate it, and at any rate, what I ought to do about it all.

P.S.
Why is there a "spiritual" category, but not a "philosophical" category? This needs fixing.
