Below Zero


all of us,

With no exception,

Dwell in the shallows.

The shallows of eternity

Where we are enabled.

That is, to survive.

There is a depth to life.


Very few venture out.

It takes more than a breath.

It takes everything from you.

It is beyond our surface psyche.

It is for neuronic contemplation.

It is below Zero.
