      Doubled over, the twin take,
      The scaling of heights
      Without a ceiling in sight,
      Then the falling down to lows
      That have no floor at all,
      Where’s balance to be found there?
      On each rung up?
      Each rung down?
      Well chutes and ladders,
      All in play today,

      I look to the spine,
      To the low notch
      In the skull’s back,
      I juice it with a rub,
      Then roll whatever sign of life is there
      Down the backside
      Like a ball of golden light,
      Warm light,
      Honey sweet,
      Syrup drip
      Down to the tip,
      Then guide it up the front
      With a mantric boost,
      Keep going,

      When the right mood strikes
      Like a well struck bell,
      A form shows
      As a loop of light,
      Felt light
      Flowering upwards, downwards,
      Inwards and outwards,
      All directions light,
      No way to miss it,
      Nothing else to do or be,
      Entirely light,
      Entirely weightless,
      Then as a veil of light born raindrops fall,
      You’ll find yourself going on about your day.
