THE would be dialogical discussion
presuppositions
preprogram
preconditions
for
precognition
prescribing
lenses
telling me
what to see
when I read my B.I.B.L.E.
therby controlling my destiny
BUT
Then there's that song. . . . . .
MYSTERY
quietly singing that
LOVE
must
simply
BE
FREE
with invisible ink
to write
the unutterable
only discernable
in unapproachable LIGHT
like REVELATION
in the darkest night
unmending the tethers of
control's appetite
birthing flight.

russell simmons. . . . . niiiiiicccccceeeeee. thanks michael. good to hear from you. and thanks jp--

though Wendell Berry from a few posts back is still ringing in my ears with this kind of drivel:
"any readers who like your work, doubt their judgment."

i will let myself live in denial of that for another night.

as we used to be fond of saying back in my hometown of dumas, arkansas. . . . . . . . prec. (pron. = preesh)
