He taught me to walk gently
To set my spine and clear akashic records
within a set of breaths

I knew of emptiness
I read of Siddhartha, Lao Tzu
Then took on the blackness of morphine
and a granted wish for death

He taught how to touch without touching
To mend without a needle
To cut with no scalpel

I could disappear

Journey through the fluid
Journey through the plasma
Become the body
Of another

I lived this way
Meditating on the void until
I made one thousand promises
To speak in whispers
To set things back the way they
sat before I came
To serve the intention of the other

Meditating into eternities
years became decades
Decades of initiations

One thousand promises
Made to an absent god

Promises
Made to dead prophets

A set of rites
A set of instructions on how to
Journey through the fluid
Journey through the plasma
Become the body of another

One thousand promises
To speak in whispers
To sit at the table to set the original face
To guide atoms back the way they were

Before our meeting was conceived

One thousand promises
To serve the intention of the other
