Are you someone, anyone?
A good person
with certain bad notions
Could you be compelled to toss your child out a window
if you had never heard of such a thing?

Have you ever felt completely human
organized, just
like an animal
seething at the mouth?

Do you ever wonder what is in a name
a word
a number?

Are you one
the other
something else
near
far
now
then
later
gigantic
small?

Do you know where you come from
what is the location?

Can you soft
hard
tame
wild
open
close
well
ill
stay
change
whisper
loud
sing
song
glow
dim
face
fear
war
peace
scare
calm
travel
home
mind
waste
is the sky black and blue?

Are you natural
plastic
looking
satisfied
dressed
bare
moving
still
sanely
mad
a modest pomp
addicted?

Do you know what a race is
where it is going?

Can you up
down
idle
work
order
chaos
break
mend
bend
grade
A C F
E Z
pro
con
sub
un
in
out
better
worse?

Do you have the right
left
wrong?

Can you say no
do it anyway?

Do you love
hate
power
weak?

Are you beautiful
ugly
male
female
father
mother
sister
brother
husband
wife
young
old
ancient
new
American
anything
else?

Something, everything, nothing, line, square, circle, box?

Do you desire all
none
speak
in silence
feel pleasure
in pain?

Are you selfishly
selfless?

Do you know the value
of worth
clean
dirt
remember
to forget
feel safe
in danger?

Can you consume
life
poison
yourself?

Are you, me
and I
lonely
with everyone?

Do you know
ignorance?

Are you illuminated
in the dark?

Do you love your family
the stranger
lie
truthful?

Can you laugh tears
devour loves?

Sense beyond the sensible.

Have you ever felt living
lived
larger than life
dying
dead
divined?
