One Self

i swallowed that pill
and became a pole dancer

divided i stood
desperate to understand

a consciousness cleft in twain
transfixed by twilight

and glowing trails
vanishing into thin air

the strangest occurrence
of doppler diremption

plays to the infinite sprawl
of our solitude

desert roads lined

with the odes to lost destinies

where the wind stings with sediments

remnants once relevant

whittled away
by the truths of their time

hapless are we
in our human dichotomies

striving to transcend
a nature unknown

surrounded by mirrors
reflecting our absence

through semblances seen
as one self, realized
