connected in the rudraksha forest
i meditated and traced back into my blood lines
the joys and sorrows of all who came before me
drawn full into my body.
navigating along a nano-sized boat along these channels
I explored my arteries, arterioles, and capillaries;
when I reached my heart, I leapt out of the boat
and dove deep into my left ventricle, swam for an hour.
now, I don’t exist as the meat and flesh of walking
