( A poem inspired by marge's poem to mezcaline which was also inspired by a poem by Seymour. It is dedicated to you two and to the power of the Sierra of Oaxaca's mushrooms)

Flex consciousness
And what took refugee in the shadows of vanity
or what had been taken by the river of time
erased in the palimpsest of the mind (memory)
Breathes and trodds your life anew

Bend Realitty
For our senses play only a part
of what is weaven in the complex flux
of life, and matter, and death
See the layers underlying everything
ride the waves in the web of energy

Know thyself
And cry, damn the gods, shrink by self pity
to then be magnetized by a planet
your mother calls again, lulls the craziness away
and whispers: my child, see the wrong you've done
Its time for you to live like a man.

BE HUMBLE
The opportunity to live
to breath
to love
to see
to die
all here
Thanks for oppening my understanding
to the power that has been here far longer
and will stay far longer than what humans can conceive...
