Caveat for Men Seeking Knowledge II

I woke up one morning and

realized that

I could no longer exist in

the world as a

“normal” human being.


Now over

my dapper days, my days of salmon and wine and roses

here I am existing on

the margin of society

my shelter the streets, the trains

my food meager and dependent on

the caprice of passersby

my clothing shabby

my star eyes betraying my

luminous mind

a subtle smile animating my

serene face.



the psychological and emotional

consequence of

attaining Knowledge.
