I removed the watch from my wrist
And was installed in timelessness,

I turned the switch off in the living room
And the light illuminated home,

I stopped watching the news and consuming entertainment
And got closer to reality,

I detached my name tag from my desk
And found my true self instead.

(Fernando Osorio, from “Poems in the Light”, April 2022)
