Taboo




The universe is suffused with absence.
Everywhere lacks everything
except for the little it contains.

Nature's accommodations
of specific need are rare;
that's why we adapt,
become varied and prolific.

True naiveté often lies
in judging others naive.

There are those who never find
a chance to love, boo hoo,
but they love love
and should get credit for it.

They love love well
and never turn to hate
or indifference.

Even many given love
can't say that.

Sometimes the impulse
is worth more than eventual success.

Eddies of error
subdue our preference
to swim true.
