A HOST OF BAD ACTORS

Your life is a series of compounds
stored in your memory.
Intangible.
Non-existent.
Except with
fellow witnesses
in the shared delusion.

Every memory
a facade,
jigsaw neurons
reenacting your life.

Your presence in the now
an afterthought.
Reality meeting your brain
after the events have already
transpired.

We are compounds of reactions
and shared memories,
given our civility by others.
Elevated from a chimp
with training.

Ego
meaningless
in the light of
our true essence.

Neural compounds
reenacting experiences
to bring meaning and
value.

Tragic to have
a neural jigsaw
bring you comfort.
Bad actors
trying to relive a time
that you never had
to begin with.

06/11/2017: Thanks for reading. The latest news? It's been a while, and I've been secretly working on a new comic series for over a year now.
Excited about this project, and shooting for a 2019 publication, and will be going big-time with this thing.
Other than that, lots of work, little time, been happily single for almost two years and feel more freedom than I have in a long time.
Cheers, friends, and to foes of past and present: thanks for keeping the fire burning. - Chris
