Last gasps

Buddhists talk about no self

Some fall in love with emptiness

And get Zen sickness

People start a protest

Stare down soldiers with guns

A man takes a drug

At double the dosage

Just to see what might happen

The couple drives on a winding road

Too fast for conditions

But laughing

They climb a mountain

To where there is no air

Just because it’s there

Some prepare their souls

For a rapturous experience

Others freeze their brains

In hope of scientific resurrection

Courting annihilation makes people feel important
