Religion, politics, psychology, education, cultural theory, philosophy – people who devote their lives to the study of these topics sometimes feel like they are studying the cement of humanity; the discipline to rule them all. But humanity isn’t a paved road with one cement that binds us. It’s a mixed media sculpture, with super glue, sticky tack, duct tape, cement and nails.
Buckminster Fuller once said that “the universe is non-simultaneously apprehended.” So, to the intellectuals, mystics and self-proclaimed profits who think they understand, who think their life’s devotion is the best way, who think they hold THE key, just remember it won’t fit in every door.
Manuscripts, like muscles,
need rest to build.
Yet, the breath and the body
only hone when willed.
The breach between beauty
and the ugly, unskilled
is the distance from deprecation
to a glass half filled.
Talents lackluster / talents that glisten =
talents laid down / much repetition.
Those who succeed are those who are smitten
by the love of the language no matter who listens.
