ms. ant rope

September 29, 2004

even this is a complex wor(l)d
hellbent on compounding its complexes

everything is simple if you know how to lacerate
graphs: parabolic asymptotic tangent

but despite your own reasons everything happens for a reason
except reason: cold and unreasonable

        what is the difference between the come and go
if in the end all is the same: Kant Mill Aristotle pistol under the pillow

choose life because to do otherwise is not to
choose love because knowledge will build you up and do you in
choose a short memory and a long leash
choose thick tomes the cheapness of words the escape of youth and the dissipation of warmth
