contemplating
ㅤ ㅤself-indulgence
navel-gazing
ㅤ ㅤinward judgments

omphaloskepsis
ㅤ ㅤ-afflicted
one-track-minded
ㅤ ㅤthought-restricted

umbilical
ㅤ ㅤregion-rooted
cares of greater good
ㅤ ㅤexcluded

self-centered and
ㅤ ㅤill-reputed
magnanimity
ㅤ ㅤpolluted

named and practiced
ㅤ ㅤby the old Greeks
chakra-seeking
ㅤ ㅤHindu beliefs

eyes — the windows
ㅤ ㅤto the soul
opt instead for
ㅤ ㅤthe peephole

just me and my
ㅤ ㅤbellybutton
we are busy …
ㅤ ㅤplease — don’t butt in!

thanks for planting the seed of this idea, Stephen. written in Mary’s signature 4x4 style.
