 When you listen to your own thoughts
 amid the cluttered chatter
 You are psychotic.
 When you fully admit the figure
 and smile back at the mirror          
 You are a vain narcissist.
 When you walk into the depths
 in search of connections unseen
 You are a troglodyte.
 When you begin to melt
 Into the vastness of the ocean
 You are an existential loner.
 All along you have been on a retreat
 in spacetime, through a blackhole 
 rooted in its fabric, unsullied and serene.
