Insight


That insight will have to last you
the rest of your days; seeing into
the void and making sense of it
is not a recommended way to
achieve admissible satori. Not in
this neck of the woods anyway –
officials of the ruling hegemony
will need to be satisfied you were
actually stoned out of your brain.
That way they can take the pain
away from explaining it was not
an alternate universe – just the
same old one seen with a little
cognitive juice lubricating the
wheels. Well, at least that was
the way they explained it to me.
