Aspirations and Aspersions



There is what concentrates and
there is what is being concentrated,
but what concentrates is also being concentrated.

Let me not say no when I mean yes,
yes when I mean no, or maybe
when I mean no way in hell.

Let me reject the rituals of capitulation,
the eager revelations of hypocrisy.

Question the clarity of action.
The clarity of mistaken action.
The guidance of silence.

This may not be all there is
but I'm beginning to suspect
this is all I am.
