Afterthought

There is no end to chasing objects in the world. An “inward” direction begins an investigation into this “person” we feel we are. It may be revealed that we are not a person who “has” consciousness but rather we are consciousness expressing through an apparent person in this transactional world.

My Rhetorical Roommate

Rhetoric is defined as “skill in using language effectively or persuasively” but also extends to grandiose speech “full of hot air”. We often hear the term “rhetorical question” as used in a sarcastic way to make an obvious point that requires no reply. This poem describes how the “voice in the head” may behave and how one may eventually “win” themselves back from the tyranny of this rhetorical roommate. Enjoy!
