Unfinished One

 

this unfinished project buried

in the back of a drawer

a tangle of strings and knots and beads

what was I thinking

 

I still don't know how to finish it

and really no interest in

figuring out the puzzle

the corner I painted myself into

 

I wonder why I keep it along

with other things that once held meaning

invested with a fleck of me

contingent juju

 

I could tame it down under a plate of glass

within a frame of elegant design

a few threads escaping

trailing out

 

Title it "Unfinished One" ....

 

 

it is what it is

I am I and my circumstance;

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.

        —MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist’s credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my politics, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.                JEANETTE WINTERSON,                     Gut Symmetries

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                                          ROBERT MCCALL
