The Obliteration

The Obliteration of the Golden Vase, the One we think we are.

The wise one who sat and watched toughts float by.

Only to realise that s/he is not alone in doing the Watching.

The sudden realisation of the meaning of “I”.

Starting to think of that whenever the word is mentioned.

Only one letter in a whole alphabet?

No wonder I feel stuck!

The Gratitude at being served this knowledge.

When I not long ago was believing something entirely different.

That the vase was alive.

That I had somehow to fill it.

Or at least show off some good flower(s).

When there is nothing to change at all.

Throwing that cherished vase into the wall though!

Will that really be necessary?

No need to!

It is already starting to look like a vase that only once

Was.

~ Eckhart Tolle

If I cannot live with myself,…

City life

How she lives

in a New York flat

fashionably taken

to the slums

in narrow constricted island

of Manhattan

She can only stretch upwards

slumped

in a kitchenette

with perpetual hot

water

and a telephone

not luxury and a gas stove

just in case

the restaurants are closed or she wants to

kill Her Self

How she lives

continuous use of ice

she can use gas freely

without

ruining

Her Self

Electric light

practically universal

picture of Her

New York flat

and vacuum clean
