Selfless Behavior




waited for a self to form
attempted to construct a self
sought a self in everything
assumed a self, another, another
identified with everything liked and called it self
counted impulses and averaged them to a self
eliminated all else to be left with self
sold myself, then bought it back
explored my limits to see my silhouette
waited for an illusion of self to dissolve
