Consciousness / Unconsciousness

Ellis Knight
Jan 15, 2024


Consciousness — a very complicated subject,

Attempting to explain its ethereal nature,

Like trying to nail jello to the wall.

So, how about unconsciousness?

Try some Propafol (you’re probably overdue for that colonoscopy anyway),

Enter the void — no thoughts, no dreams, no nothing.

Is that what death is like?

My barber asked the last time I got a haircut,

If so, I don't want to die.
