How to Build a Universe That Falls Apart Two Days Later

Get trapped in a dream.
Make sure that when you wake up
you don’t wake up.
That is the most important part.
Sit in your fortress,
you man in the high castle,
and wait for what’s coming.
Don’t mind the vultures that hover
like black thoughts
across blacker skies.
Don’t mind the confusion
of knowing or not knowing
whether you are authentic.
Find some form of understanding
to be your constant,
to pull you through a cosmic slit
and to make you real.
Real enough.
But, if you don’t like this world
then just make another.
