Fire in the water
Held together with it’s teeth
tell us how you’ll outlive us all
writing down what I know better
To read more than what's really written
After everything
gone missing in the sun
H a l l u c I n a t I n g
congregate to fill the space
Do you know where the soul is?
to talk me out of everything
Careful what you do next,
don't just waste your time
because reading more than what's here
is my intention

The author's comments:
In the act of seeing below the surface, 'below the 'water', of behaviors, thoughts and judgements there is a burning caused by Truth. Burning up the false hallucinations that congregate and fill our awareness from magazines, TV, peers -presenting to us a 'fake' and non-functioning self. I have the final intention of seeing that Fire so don't waste your time dissuading me.
