Decoupled (for Ryokan)

Decoupled (for Ryokan)

When all thoughts are exhausted
Then I begin to think

The thief left behind
My fears of losing fear

I would rise about the clouds
But then I would cease to walk

My heart’s like a wheel
Spinning past my head

Yesterday was a different day
Today exactly the same

No mind makes me remember
Why I learned to forget

I need to do something useless
So I do this

The world owes me nothing
And I can’t pay it back

In all the seas of ignorance
I sail on, fearless
