the bathwomb

IMG_4235

i like this place;
this space;
this calm…

i like to be enveloped
in the balm and
silken
fragrant warm.

to be cocooned,
away from time and traffic,
the chaos, the
havoc and
loud voices;
where choice is
simplified;
and silence,
amplified.

i do my best thinking
underwater,
here,
in the bathwomb.
’tis where i feel
most alive; where
i let go
of all that
blinds, binds and
reminds
me of the human error
hysteria
and
abject terror.
there are no false flags
here.
no fear, nor cruelty.

it’s quite simple, really.
