A Clumsy Parable

Billy Bainthal was a strange man.
Every night when he went to sleep in his 6’x3′ bed, his dead mother came to sleep beside him.
“This is crazy, Billy,” I said, “Your mother is alive!”
He gleamed in his melancholic eyes and shrugged.
As if to say, “Now you know the problem.”
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Seenthi loved prisms.
When the colors emerged out of one like magic, she kept mumbling, “7, 13, 29, 67, 91, 4, 48….”
And when the colors got together again to make a brilliant white, she multiplied silently and quickly.
“You are missing the point, Seenthi,” I said, nervously.
“Not a bit.” she whispered, “It’s 3089276736.”
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Gaya could see himself, all the time.
He could see himself running, thinking, buying vegetables, dusting books, making love…
“Something like out of the body experience, eh?” I proposed heartily!
“Nah. It’s more like renting a cab. It goes wherever you want it to.”
He looked happy.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The other world beaconed.
As we were trying to make something out of ourselves…
Higher, bigger, happier…

And if the other world beacons…
Have no fear.
It’s one world.
We only lived in a cell.
