An Ode to his mirror at 6:13 in the morning Manny Furious once wrote….

Behold! The blazing faces.

Dozens. Hundreds. Tight with disappointment. Drooping

with frustrations.

Red with greed. Cornered with regret.

Angry faces.

Rushed faces.

Faces full of angst and existential knots.

Sex!

Money!

Power!

Chasing, grabbing, clutching. Faces swimming against

the proverbial current.

WHY!?

Where are you going?

What is so important?

Why are you in such a hurry to die?

What are you lacking at this moment?

Right now.

Where are the faces of freedom

joy

love

content

patience?

…Oh, there they are.
