  • I feel like I'm tap dancing on water lillies,
    juggling air bubbles,
    and hypnotising a herd of hemphalumps

    all at the same time

    treading water in a sea of space,
    stardust strangling my sight,
    and minutes whizzing past like minute mosquitos

    an artificial anomaly,
    unravelling inside me,
    as I try to figure out

    But how am I to know when I've figured it out?
    The superfluous structures surrounding me will sunder

    and a new moment will descend
    a new circumstance
    a new confluence

    The stasis of this second will evaporate,
    the hephalumps will trample the air bubbles,
    eat the water lillies,

    and my conundrum will continue...
