nash equilibrium


there is a within and the without

i reside in parallel. a finitiude

pegged to the earth,

and a deathless immensity that

clouds an astral other-world.


a constant tug between

your particles and your wave,


you swing between the poles;

in-between your mortal fear

and the light that burns at your

center coinciding

with the whole universe.


you writhe in despair; trying to

hold on to your opposites


till you precipitate effortlessly

to your nash equilibrium

of the complementing tao.
