Puissance



Stars don't burn.  They are burning.
I don't think.  I am thinking.

I will no longer tell my own stories.
Life in all its glory & horror.

More interested in reacting to the world
than recapitulating it.

Purge my brain
of everything plausible but wrong.

And let me never reject
the unlikely-but-correct.

I have done,
but I don't much more than I do.

I own nothing of what I owe,
owe nothing of what I own.
