Being is inside and out of any person.
Therefore, inside ourselves we find both reflection and external expression.
It is one’s duty to consider both in equal esteem.
Can one be both internal and external and live within the empirical world?
The empirical world is created though both experience and consideration.
To be is to consider and experience.
Halfway to absolution
My body is a tether to this house
Which is a second skin
This city, the third- crawling as it is
I am heavy twice
Once for the hands that slide into my dreams
Once for the hands that stop short of my waking skin
