Phenomenology of Passion

A view off mainstream,
about four thousand miles down,
lies a truth that could remain unseen,
yet purest in its form comes to town.

When heard above all, no one could drown
this heart, these eyes, this brain.
A passion so driven, and unique above any crown,
it would stop any existence of Leucosia, Veles, and Cain.

Imagine taking your body outside the book
where the parts hold more than bone and muscle,
but inspirations, aspirations, not just look
pretty reassurance, but freedom, desire, hustle.

This is the body of the genius, the philosopher, the poet,
a writer of his own book, maker of machines, and unstoppable to show it.
