Just a few days ago I had a poem titled “Parallel Paradise” published in an online literary magazine called FishFood Magazine. It is the first prose poem I’ve had published.
The theme of the poem is spiritual. There’s an element of religion in the piece. When I wrote it, I thought about dying and death and all the mystery that surrounds our existence. Life is suffering. Death is final. The idea of having an infinite soul and our physical being functioning as our vessel inspired me. I also embraced the notions that everything is connected and the universe is a perfect design we spend our lives trying to comprehend.
