The Psychology of the Unconscious (A Love Poem)

the psychology of the unconscious

is the psychology of the other

the one that we seek

whether it be a lover

or another hidden down under


underĀ our bellies and boils

and foibles

lies the other

waiting to be discovered


discovered or not

the other plots

to help us not

become a thing

that rots


when we discover the other

the other leads

to those places that we need

like a wind-blown seed


the other has become

a place of just one

the other and I
