From the standpoint of true
happiness all of the usual
props for enjoyment stand out
as superfluous.

An idea for a sentence
or an idea for a new
category of sentences.

Observe yourself in your
round of lesser events.
You move again and
again, from place to
place. Look at it as if
you don't know how you
got there. Now, what
does this mean.


"You know much better than
me what is customary in
this land."

The failed poems streak
like falling stars across
the sky of understanding.
This is why a poem must
wear a mask.The poem
that announces itself
risks not being
heard because somehow
it speaks out of turn.

It's hard to get people
to read what you write.
Keep writing anyway.
