Contemplate Your Navel

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Contemplate your navel.
Engage in apathy.
Permit omphaloskepsis.
Enjoy the lethargy.

Contemplate your navel.
Engage in abstraction.
Permit omphaloskepsis.
Enjoy the inaction.

Contemplate your navel.
Engage in indolence.
Permit omphaloskepsis.
Enjoy the quiescence.

Contemplate your navel.
Engage in laziness.
Permit omphaloskepsis.
Enjoy the craziness.

Contemplate your navel.
Engage in attitude.
Permit omphaloskepsis.
Enjoy the latitude.

Contemplate your navel.
Engage in reflection.
Permit omphaloskepsis.
Enjoy the connection.
