Free To Roam

The mind and body dualist,

his prison for a throne


Confusion reigns where consciousness walks,

where can it find a home


The soul the prize that matters,

the spirit up for grabs


Proximity defining its own lie,

positioning unclad


But somewhere in the distance,

and somewhere heretofore


A laughter lives beyond itself,

escaping its own core


The zero-sum dilemma,

what Sages claim to own


Lay far beyond what’s deep within

—where truth is free to roam


(Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2020)
