green for green

the mind enters the dormant state
through excess of green and sleep,
where ne'er a man recalls
a thing in the waking state

(nothing is recalled
in the waking hours)

meditation - crouching on the floor,
every bodily process
becomes conscious

all outside forces
like a dream
it seems
at times

recalls sleep state,
recalled hours
of blurred

we traded green for green

(forced dreams,
self medicated
and self inflicted
dream state
of the never ending
journey to defining
the world
through a glass filter)

we traded green for green
and lies for non-knowledge
(eternal speculation)
or knowledge for lies
