plato’s allegory

everything becoming nothing
in a vacuum of the brain
neither awake nor dreaming,

but nothing,

neither this nor that,
here nor there,
I nor Thou

but an absence of
shadows in the cave,
in the dark,

(evaporating in the dark)

shadows of nothing
either here or there,
this or that,

I or Thou,

but a slight movement
and a brief pause
before the closed door
without lock or key

or milk and cookies
uneaten on the bedside table.
