We live in a world of closeness.
it feels like me over here and
you over there
but it’s not – not really.
Don’t let yourself be fooled
by appearances –
they are the grand fraud
fraud? Such a strong word…
maybe better to say “illusion”, that sounds more
But it’s not – not reasonable.
Reason clearly tells us that it is not
you over there and me
It’s us together all the way down.
Fraud makes us perk up our ears
so I call it fraud.
This world of words dominates my view
It is hard to stay with the wind in my nose
without a name at all.
Hard to stay with the flesh of my hand
without me being the one whose it is.
A very deep call from my innards inside
to feel this feeling of being alive
but not as a ‘me’ or a ‘you’.
I know that this deep feeling is really me and
really you, so
I fell for the fraud for a while,
yes, quite a long while.
now let me take the word-magic and
turn it around: “I am you and you are me and we are all together”
said the Walrus, right?
what an affirmation – might help
