there is a within and the without
i reside in parallel. a finitiude
pegged to the earth,
and a deathless immensity that
clouds an astral other-world.
a constant tug between
your particles and your wave,
you swing between the poles;
in-between your mortal fear
and the light that burns at your
with the whole universe.
you writhe in despair; trying to
hold on to your opposites
till you precipitate effortlessly
to your nash equilibrium
of the complementing tao.
