learning to die by vagabond ©

learning to die
(for harry dean stanton)

the trick is to disengage
from the bullshit
from fear from hate
from the smallness
that holds us back
to disengage from
the stink of desperation
this place leaves on your skin

i want the courage to disengage
from the idea that you are not me
and that i am not you
and the fear more than anything else
to disengage from the fear
it’s a trick question
when you open your arms to the void
you find love resides
in the strangest of places
