Ataraxia Nervosa

When cosmic insight
Has filled you with light,
When you’ve beaten the odds
And placated the Gods,
When you’re rested and sated
And recently mated,
When the belch and the fart
Have seen fit to depart,
When the pissing is past
And the shit has been shat,
And the who that was you is a guy with no why,
Nirvana’s a coma
For psyche and soma,
And you don’t even bother to die.

So is that a reference to or If the later, this could be read as a poem about Then again, maybe you've just be hitting the bottle. I had a nice Chardonnay with dinner, but I don't think I've reached Ataraxia Nervosa.
