THOUGHTS FROM A DRUNK PSEUDO INTELLECTUAL AT 0555AM

don’t let the shadow of memory
encroach over you
or you will not get the chance to receive
what you deserve.
from today’s perspective
what limits you?
it is the sadness of the past
that grips you.
in turn
the future you’re seeking
is a desperate grab
at having something in hand
which eludes you.
this is because
the mind is always dwelling on
what could be its last opportunity
to gain something.
gain nothing
instead.
the Holy Grail
of wisdom
could be found
in something as simple
as a mirror;
no memories from the past
and no visions of the future
only a thing being
accurate
and present.
presently
reflected.
the Holy Grail
like a golden cup and a silver cup
shattered
nine fragments of the golden cup
and nine more from the silver
but how came you now
to know this,
destruction?
cups and mirrors and grails
the same
still vessels
worthless but for the nourishment
you decide
to provide it.

knock back the medicine from fragments
and grin.
