Obscurity

In the end

It doesn’t matter

If I’m wonderfully right

Or dreadfully wrong

If no one takes any notice

There’s no point in carrying on

So,

So long

.

There’s a desolate kind of safety

Here

Where no one cares to look

More than momentarily

Before averting eyes adrift

To where they think they see(k)

More clarity

In frozen frames of time

Suspended

In hallowed halls of fame

.

Should you care to dwell more than momentarily in natural inclusion, please visit http://www.spanglefish.com/exploringnaturalinclusion

Postscript

A current excised from past and future

Cannot exist

Yet the Whole of Abstract Thought & Theory

Is framed in this State of ignorant bliss

Stuck in paradox

Obstructing and obscuring

All that flows in vibrant life
