Desire kept them pacing back and forth

Desire kept them pacing back and forth, from one end of the block to the other, warming the sidewalk of Morono Street, in front of El Lohbado Oogah Tabernacle. The dialectic pair considered the negative and positive outcome of pursuing desire, the possible joy of satiation, or the frustration of not being able to get the wanted satisfaction.

Quite possibly he or she ended up with what he or she needed. This is purely from the inside of a male psyche and of course, I'm open to feminine suggestion, to transcend hormonal duality in order to call true love love and thinking thinking, or to discuss loneliness, heartache and pain, independent of gender confusion. There's much to be said for a pair of light cotton trousers and a purple shirt on a hot summer day, while strolling past a Lohbado Boutique on Morono Street in the middle of Oogah Parade.

Of course, there's the slight speech impediment of repressed desire resulting from years of negative conditioning and failed relationships. One might notice the round about way of attempting to describe a situation, while avoiding the central point, preferring, instead, to hover on the periphery, the outer hub of the wheel of life, set in motion during that initial moment of ignorance, or lack of mindfulness.

However, it's never too late. Don't give up. One could reach out and supplicate various notions about existence, or for lack of a better plan, one could do far worse than, as a last resort, turning in sublimation to Oogah and Oorsis, the original anthropomorphic representatives of God and co-creators of the universe and asking them to help you in overcoming arrogance, negativity, fear and lack of generosity. Next time you're having a bad day, next time a colleague snubs you with arrogant remarks, or the boss puts you down with cynical comments and unrealistic demands, next time your partner says you need to communicate and provide answers to unanswerable questions, pause, gaze out the window, into the center of the sky (assuming such a thing could be found, and if not, taking time to verify the non-verification) and remember the lusty behavior of Oogah and Oorsis, surrendering, without hesitation or apology, to streaming, blissful uninhibited desire, like a flower unfolding endlessly, without regret, or post honeymoon wake up and let down after a mess of unpleasant surprise, disappointment and irritating detail comes to light.
