Watch the way the world unfolds around you.
One thing leading to another in a vast circle of reality.
Notice how each piece is interlinked with so many other pieces.
Down to the knowledge that a star had to die to create the matter that makes you.
Ever sit there and just contemplate all that?
Realize that that feeling of awe is as normal as breathing, that you are a …
Perfect doughnuts penetrated my persnickety consciousness
All demanding my devotion to their deliciousness
So I complied, completely cashing out with my confections
