written by: Bruce Levine



A specialty of mine
Not asleep
Not awake
A semi-comatose state
And yet transporting
Thoughts seeking their own repose
While fulfilling their own destiny
A sidewalk paved with particles of energy
Mindfulness intertwined with reality
A speed racer in slow motion
Testing the waters while hovering in space
Fantasy or frivolity
Finalizing without finality
The essence of thought
