As if starring in a 7th grade biology film
playing backwards,
you wake to find yourself
in the body of a squirrel,
only to wake from that dream
in the body of a snake
until that lifetime too is a dusty impression.

You drift
awakening to awakening,
become a nautiloid,
protozoa, eukaryote.
Approach Nirvana.
Experience enlightenment.
Become bliss.
