If you follow your bliss, you will always have your bliss, money or not. If you follow money, you may lose it, and you will have nothing ~ Joseph Campbell

Map

Where the fuck am I?
this maze,
dead-ended around every smooth surface,
seems to move when I move
changable
one set of rules established
scraped
replaced
scraped
changing faster than I can reasonably
assimilate
5 years out
10 years out
moving so fast
that I am stuck to the walls
by the forces of nature
like the RoundUp of my childhood
looping back.
Looking closely makes sense but
looking further (past or future) away is blurred.
You always think it is going to be fun when you step on,
but you get off, sweaty and pale,
and puke into a nearby rubbish bin instead.
