I crave silence - clear and still,
And darkness too.
My body melds with it
Erasing the line where
Darkness ends and I begin.
I crave nothingness.
I was joined by Monte Wingle as I read my poem, Nirvana, and we discussed thoughts and ideas that came. Also, in the spirit of craving nothingness, we visited True Rest Float Spa to experience their float tank and see how close we could get to nothingness.
