Driving Through the Countryside

Driving through the countryside
deciding everything is not what it appears to be
may get you far enough to see a wider panoply
of streaks and jots and jagged shocks
and blots of the implausible disguises of Reality,

but may I here incline my head to thine
and share a plausible solution to this bind?
Observations I have made suggest that while
there’s neither light nor shade nor underneath,
above nor up nor down nor forward nor behind –

in shimmeringly undermining fact,
a Mind is at the root, and has your back –
which you will never know because
you cannot know yourself. (Oh dear. Perhaps
we should have left this secret on the shelf.)
