Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee
walked through some woods, but one had to pee.
Said Tweedle-dum to Tweedle-dee,
“I need to pee, but so you
“But I don’t want to go blind,”
So Tweedle-dum did
and remained good friends
So the next time you are
walking deep in the observative woods,
hold it all in
as Tweddle-dum knows you should.

The distance between what you want and what you are, psychologically, is (additionally) what you are.
[Dogbane Leaf Beetles have a deep sheen of iridescence that changes as we move in relation to the insect (or by the way it moves relative to us). Dogbane Leaf Beetles feed on prairie plants, such as the Milkweed plant. Dogbane Leaf Beetles can avoid predators by giving off a foul-smelling secretion when they are touched. An insect with a very splendid sheen of metallic-like iridescence!]
