Having a Say in Things

Everything
changes
with time.


The color
of the
rose the
tribute due
Caesar a
mother’s love.


Then again,
nothing changes.


It’s because
we think
in sweeping
generalizations
that we
think things
change.


We think
things change
because we
don’t want
them to
change &
nothing ever
turns out
like we
want it to.


Don’t panic.


Don’t swallow
the peach
pit of
contradiction.


Don’t suck
up your
confusion like
fresh-spun
cotton-candy.


Think of
the smallest
unit of
conceivable time.


Think of
the smallest
unit of
inconceivable time.


Think of
a unit
of time
smaller still.


If you’ve
been successful
you’ve arrived
at eternity
where time
does
not exist.


Your problem
is you
think you
have a
say in
the matter.
