Paracosmic Dalliance



Participation is the weak force.
Understanding is the strong force.

It is pleasing when the simple proves true.
It doesn't always.

Far better the lover of strange things
than the one who doesn't love.

Language is always a provocation to emerge
from the silt.

But I can say everything
and still you won't hear what you are listening for.

We must rebel against the no,
elect the yes to represent us.

I'm ready.
I'm ready to get ready.

Obsessed with the question:
Am I dormant or extinct?

Taking care of yourself isn't always about protection.
Sometimes it's about connection.

Understanding is the weak force.
Participation is the strong force.
