Dragon Dance - an art work by T Newfields
Are you certain
you are human?

There are plenty of other creatures
romping through our brains.
An entire horrorscope of existence yelps inside us:
each part insisting on its claims.
Can you feel falcons soar through your lungs?
Or sense sea creatures swimming in your intestines?
Have you ever felt monkeys toss your head?
Or bulls bellow in your brain?
In the jungle of existence we must deal with many beings:
each clamoring for a voice;
each yearning to become a "reality."
Is it possible to exit from
this pandemonium alive?
if we laugh, stay calm,
& cling to no vise.
Seems like a big "if," huh?
Most of us are suckers
for a skillful guise.
