No Self

She walks with flowers in her hair

A pink ribbon holds her dress in place

She has no belt

She’s never needed one

She walks alone

Side by side with her self

Sometimes it’s harder to face yourself than it is to face

your. self.

Life is a highway

The body is the car

When the car is full of passengers are you really alone?

Can you be alone all by yourself?


Not when there is no self

“Dude, you’re lost” she said

I’m lost?

How can I be lost when fish is $4.99 a pound?


That’s not me talking

It’s her

It’s just not



We can talk about the price of fish all night

but we’ll never fly like ducks…
