we're all such visionaries
sending our minds into the stars
and trying to dwell there
with our feet still on the ground
you have to leave the ground to get there
and no matter how advanced
your mind is
(or you think your mind is)
you're still in a body
subject to all the ache and woe
to which bodies are heir
and of which visionaries despair
if their illumination proves false...
