from "NINE 1-63"

image borrowed from bing


“There’s no way to peace—peace is the way.”
Miles Davis says play what you don’t know.
Everything we seek is guided by what is sought.
Sources of my knowledge are sensation, memory,
introspection, reason.

Every thought is first thought,
and also best thought.
I feel obligated to live
as excellently as possible.
A phony Somali passport
and a screechy mythological gargoyle.
This elasticity is overrated,
so don’t mention it again.
Dripping with compassion, oh honey,
I love you, too.
