  • When most of us returns from the abyss,
    (part is always left standing, agape)
    (inscrutable howl within the throat)

    where we stood helpless, complicit
    at the edge of the world,
    (Id & Ego heading home, oblivious)

    all we took in then, implicit
    goes on somehow, insists
    till we exhale the final last
    depart, the way this is.
