But again in transit

Mythic creatures mix – as in our


Black lotuses and blue ancestors –

Just as the family album now


Faces, like our options,

One above the other, in totem,

Also, not solution, only conun-


These meditations companions

On a journey that for us

May end, not in a terminus,

But again in transit.

These then are Orient-ations,

Also, Disorient-ations.
