The Grand Ellipses

I listen patiently when I am waiting for reality to respond. I act impulsively when I have no idea what's going on . . .

"The Grand Ellipses … “? I love that moment when i’m thinking about something, or listening to something and i have that … moment. It’s that pause before you have your realization of clarity. So, i thought that would be a good name for this, to refer to that grand moment when we let our mind settle, let the questions and turbulence stir a bit and allow free thought to reign.

Dance a bit . . .

In the beginning
i read of the greek gods
the same time i read of my god.
i struggled with . . .
what things meant,
where our thoughts came from,
why i struggled with things taught;
the why's, the what's,
the fuck all's,
the jesus-tap-dancing-christ's

Job, a writtenly good and well man,
was fucked around with,
by god and devil -
supposedly blameless and upright
and feared his loving creator
and shunned the very thing
created by creator

before i knew much
i knew that it was all the same;
that which we love
is that which we blame

i fought out of it,
i climbed refrigerators
and meditated under magnolia
and, even now . . .
do not have it right . . .
and don't look forward to it.
