Put your head under pressure,
Flatten your smooth monkey palms into your bleached skull.
Crush the black seeds to dust, let it blow out the shell like soot.
Breathe it back in, taste the smoke, know it,
Then exhale, letting the dust billow and dissipate into nothingness.
Repeat, repeat, repeat, until you know that dust like you knew your mother’s milk.
It is yours,
And you will be able to set it aside one day.
