Two Become One (Poem)

First we eat to live Then we live to eat Then everything else is just stats on a dopesheet A race to see how much we can get More than all A contest of self-righteousness Law for Law But how finicky we are when we get what we want then want more just make up for the Spirit we lost Don’t you know? How the Soul aches for two become one Then that one become whole Then that hole be undone Yet how impervious it is to become One with the Power When the power we know leaves us lonlier than ever Commitmentless sex Skin chasing skin Rapacious indulgence Slaves to our whims How selfish it is How foolish and raunch What triumph it is when two become one
