There is little to distinguish the
living from the dead when
both are symmetrically bound.
It is said one cannot meaningfully
be one without the other,
tho’ they mutually exclude.
Life and death are optimistic concepts
of the same somethingness, polar
extremities of the same point of view.
Today I am neither; I am
convinced by an unshakeable
sense of contentment.
