The Surge



You can add things
to capture beauty,
to capture truth,
but you can't leave things out.

Must curiosity and knowledge
exist in inverse proportions?

Is a question and its answer
the front and back
of the same thing?

Should art ask "how?" or "why?"
Art laughs at "should."

When it surges inside,
if you have never told yourself a lie
you will know what to call it.
