The Land of the Dead.

What colour is an orange?
Don’t ask me, ask your eyes.

Where is the fire?
Follow the musk of the smoke.

Why does cheese taste so good?
Let go of the question, just eat.

How does breathing feel?
Inhale, exhale, and be.

Who is speaking to me?
It’s the voice you hear in your head.

When did I arrive here?
When your mind returned
from then and there,
the land of the dead.
