What is addiction?
Addiction is a deep
Vital grasping,
To understand,
When we are in the midst,
Of a deep darkness,
Addiction is wanting,
To feel Atman,
When we cannot,
Is that smell,
You can never quite put that nose on,
It is in the benches of your churches,
In the alleys and dark corners,
In the offices,
And libraries,
In the congressional behavior therapy rooms,
In the cages of the monkeys,
In Albert Schwartzer’s underwear,
Melts love into fear,
Hides pain into obliviousness,
A calm misunderstanding,
A violent greed,
A placent homeless,
A special liking,
A different time,
But we all suffer from addiction,

Addiction to this world.
