indulgences

these indulgences
complete abandonment
of reason, or reasonable
they keep me away
from dejection,
despair

these indulgences
slippery slopes
down the road to perdition
a vortex

these indulgences
paralyze the will
blunt the fears
leave behind bad taste
of failure averted
ostrich style

these indulgences
a never ending trip
down the dark alleys
where soul shrinks with horror
and changes shades,
like a chameleon,
lacking faith in its immortality

to be is to indulge
believe in original sin
play hide and seek with moksha
duck the final judgment
and to wallow
in these indulgences
