Critic 2




humans cherish
the illusion of inevitability

looking back
at one's trail of crumbs

temples and shrines of unknown origin
of lost purpose

subdivide the indivisible
with missionary arrogance

acquisition is an inquisition
of value

differences can be substantial
and yet superficial

a value of power
requires its square of wisdom

the opposite of the neurotic
is a critic of the ecstatic

restoration requires reflection
as well as loss
