Another Exhaustive Treatise on Shadows

As Henry Adams noted,
Inability to take
Contradictions as givens

Will make one prematurely
Wise. Thus, planning is fearing
And fantasizing combined.

Dim that. Maximum nothing
Depends on minimum much.
There are no givens, just myths.

Drive a wedge into your thoughts.
Use the clock to open them.
Time the nothings done with them.

Why? Nothing is important.
Very, very important.
But there’s too much near its mouth.

Wait. You don’t have to do that.
You’re mysterious and dark.
You can write about yourself.
