escape. from the world to the word. from steel and stone to ink and paper. close the door. let the world sprawl outside like an old dog. it won't go anywhere. sadly. close your eyes. open your mind. let it go wandering. forget the things your eyes brought you. let the mushrooms lead you upon the barely visible trail where the grass still grows. let the smoke rings build worlds of smoke. escape, to arrive. you think dreaming is pointless. you are right. well guess what, so is reality. remember, that reality is just one word, one world. fantasy has a million, a billion. all yours to explore, to conquer, to pillage and plunder. awaiting your consent to let go.
