Et tu

It feels like my nerves

are being slashed

with an electric whip

Hobbling around

like an old decrepit man

After all the damage

that I’ve done to this body

I’m just thankful

it’s still in as good of condition as it is

but every few months

my back tightens up

as if Brutus

just stuck his knife in

all the way to the hilt

It’s a lazy overcast afternoon

which provides the perfect opportunity

to rest and hopefully heal

Maybe I can use the pain

to reach a state of consciousness

that leads to Nirvana

A few deep breaths

A few Hail Marys

There is no physical pain

This world is an illusion

Yea, just keep repeating the mantra

until enlightenment arrives

or it’s time to take the next dose of medicine
