Ego-mind loves unfinished business,
Very befitting, for in itself it's always incomplete.
Such hectic energy guarantees us no peace of mind,
Always spurring us on toward new difficulties.
We thirst for whatever helps our self-absorption,
Mainlining whatever causes Self-forgetfulness.
What's the antidote for this coma-like condition?
Perhaps the intoxication from a drop of awakening's presence.
