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
