  • how good it is to be alive
    eyes to see
    ears to hear
    taste buds

    how good it is to be alive
    a conversation in the dark
    disembodied, all voice
    and truth

    sleeping but alive
    hovering in between
    states of consciousness
    a foot in two worlds

    how good it is to be alive
    brushing a soft cheek
    salt and pepper
    birds singing to the sun
    cry, laugh, and think

    how good it all is
