i made a resolution

to be more like a samurai

it is possible,

within myself,

to feel a chasm of great and competent seriousness

a seriousness of perfect calm

i call it “straightforward frankness of mind”


there really is a lot of waste

in the average human head at any given moment

if it is removed you can focus

then you

might not be as afraid of things

but that deep seriousness, that,

that is


the most essential

no kiddie shit

no laughter

no distraction

no waste

no frivolousness

almost like you just feel



About vurinstitute

Horatio Somersault is the Director and Regent Chancellor of the VUR Institute, a think tank involving some as-yet-unknown and slightly spooky manipulations of time and interdimensionality. In his spare time Somersault enjoys writing poems and fables. You can read his writings, as well as those of other VUR inhabitants, at vurinstitute.wordpress.com. Though he lives a wanderer's life, his hometown is a domed biome inside the water core of the moon Europa. You can follow his experiences adapting to the customs of the early 21st century on his Twitter @VURdirector and can email him at vurinstitute at gmail dot com.
