And just the other day....to a simple hullo....how are you....to a loved one....who's now 85 years old....

Knowing full well some familiar caustic reply was in the offing....

I got a....

While you eat medicines....I eat mithais...( Indian sweetmeats ) ....

Uh ho.....

There it goes...even as I went somewhat into a tizzy.....

And darling Carole....a dear friend... came to mind instantly....

"The vultures are circling...."

She would say.....
Even as she's now long gone....

And I wondered at this need.....

To feel somehow that one has transcended the human condition...

Even as Yamraj awaits equally....

One and all.....

Ensconced in ideas and beliefs of eternal life....pure consciousness....
A beyond...
Beyond....
Beyond...
This.....

Though the words purportedly might have been meant to convey....
How well she was doing....

And yet the chicanery could not be missed....
Even as my heart skipped a beat...

Many have misconstrued this to mean...
That it was the end of supposed human frailties....
All the while looking for to improve the dream....

No one wants this...
This ripping apart....
Of every last vestiges.....
The end of ideas of you and me....

It's not a walk in the park.....

And yet some fall right through...

No one knows how this happens....

Simply this....
An un-owned life...

And the thought popped up.....

Images all.....

The ideas of you and me....

Even as I smiled.....

Knowing it was all made up.....

Dealing in fake currency....

Naked under the garb....

And afraid to stand stripped bare.....

In the market place....

Without the image of me....

Where then the idea of yourself....

Emptiness dancing.....

A shadow puppet show.....

And buying into the charade.....

Hook line and sinker....

To keep you safe....

Whence was this fairy tale bought into.....

Fear the currency in which the tickets to the show trade....

And even as I sit back.....

And laugh my head off.....

The show of this and that....
Goes on.....
Even as emptiness does it's dance...

I weep....
