Survival Tips

Survival Tips

I often think of scent as a disguise
but it can also serve as conduit to revelation

Why does the lemon smell
the way it does

It is just a right-handed orange

In order to survive
it needs to be eaten

The brighter and more fragrant lemons
were eaten more
and so they survived
A story

To make what is better than the self
you can accomplish this
with the self as an accomplice

The other hand on the sword
belongs to
a steadying force

You must find your way to one another
