1) The Trance (part ii)


Madman: Oh my darling, I wish you were there...
† † † † † † † †This insane gradient keeps me open to the night...
† † † † † † † †Youíll never know I was Here.

RV Wife: Whatís he doing?

RV Husband: Heís talking to himself.

Madman: Oh good, the tourists have arrived...
† † † † † † † †Time to... put on a show...

RV Wife: Heís stopped... †Whatís he doing now?
† † † † † † † Heís just standing there.

RV Husband: Look at his eyes... Itís like they arenít there...
† † † † † † † † † † †Itís like... he... isnít there...

RV Wife: I donít know dear... I donít like it.

RV Husband: We better call the police...



[ďDispatch to all units, we have a CODE-WHITE in progress. Suspect is on foot, last seen heading northbound along the center ditch of I-95. Suspect is wearing a long, black monkís robe. Suspect appears to be dangerous.Ē]



Madman: Oh hello there, officer...
† † † † † †Iím not violent...
† † † † † †Guess I was obstructing the general pace of things...

Officer: Itís time you came with us...
† † † † † †Get in the car. † † †



Will they get me, or will I get them?
I have assembled in these last few hours,
A scattering of what I once collected.
The twists of light, by my eyes, still deceive me,
My words, and their closed ears, still conceive me.
I have left the land of laughter and loose curses,
To chant verses finer and more serene.
I have seen the ways of the dead, the ways of the beasts,
I have seen the Light, and Itsí absolute darkness;
I have hid from the shadows in a choice of silence,
And seen that when all voices are dropped,
The Kingdom is finally found and protected,
The Infinite is permitted to be at ease.

Now I must return as a new creature in the illusion of salvation,
And untangle the doubt my mind has left in others...
