I wear my steampunk space suit
underneath the human skin
and step into this stringent atmosphere.
I wonder if the DNA has been decoded
as I set my heavy suitcase aside
and dream of distant planets.
I have learned that harsh moments
can be alchemized into particles of light
that unfurl from Indra’s net
to help us on our ascension.
I know that I have found the way
through sitting hours on the cushion
and dreaming vivid dreams
that led me to take a vow
as I knelt with my sword.
I don’t remember
I signed my contract
If I ever get my memories back and
regain a sense of time,
I can recapture the comets that I have lost
along the way
as I wave to the solar system.
