Piggelie on valium and weed was a very happy Piggelie

Oh the schemes he’d weave and the phosphorescent day-glo phantasms that lurked in his brain box

He felt capable of anything as all anxiety had gone

He felt more human and less tired from the wretched night before where no sleep was possible

He felt he could have a loving relationship with a human female well, for an instant

He felt this would not be possible until he lost 30 kg

Watch thoughts slide by like skates on ice

On the conveyer belt of consciousness

Breathe deeply and watch them go by without attachment

Don’t cling desperately to your delusions

Watch ripples in your mind settle

Clarity emerges

You are not human

You are Buddha

crowd

Vast human generations seething and reproducing
Talking about the weather and waiting for death
Pecking at each other like a murder of crows
Crawling over each other in search of food and sex like cockroaches
Each one seeking identity, significance and transcendence in an ocean of semantic bleach
Each wondering about the unknowable content of the neighbour’s consciousness
Each one willing to lie if no-one else will find out
Imitating each other’s desires in a sacrificial frenzy that always ends in murder
A virulent infection spreading over and consuming the entire planet
Pestilent people everywhere, all hypnotized by mobile phones
Poor and rich, attractive and ugly, black, white, brown and yellow
No end to it all. No end to it all.
