On the Obligatory Nature of Being

To put it frankly, we don’t have to be here.  Not one of us had any choice in the decision to come to this place, to be born.  And yet our sole goal, before all else, is to live as long as we possibly can?  Presumably we do this in order to gain something more in the process of living, than that which was formally asserted, prior to our own existence.  Procreation, while being a possibility for the majority of our species, is certainly not a necessity---and for that reason,…

prayer (in the absence of justice)

in the absence of justice

you drop to your knees

& you close your eyes

looking for something

somewhere

else

which you believe can do the

work for you---

you run in your mind to another

place,

which you believe exists even though

you have never actually found proof

& no one you know

has ever found such a place

or testified to its existence

without standing in that…

may 24th (a few days after the rapture)

and so another end of the world has rolled on

by

and for those that stopped paying their bills,

who might have quit their jobs,

who spent all their money in the last couple of

weeks before the predicted day

a

sane

person

has

to

wonder

just what it must be like to believe in a fictional character who

never ceases to disappoint

when it comes to this blessed

revelation

to believe in a…

question for the believing parent

when a parent of a child

experiences

with an odd mixture of shame,

humor & wonder,

that very first lie

which their children tells them,

does this parent experience the same feeling that they

themselves did

when they found out that

santa

wasn’t real?

 

like the slim difference between

a hysterical laughing face

&

a hysterical crying face,

that flipside reflection

of…

sacred & profane

what is said to be

sacred

has never been such.

 

the fictions of religions have

plagued the minds of humans since

we made our first aurignacian

scrawlings in the haute garonne of

france.

 

there we began to carve our

images---

just embodiments of the world

around us but stretched out into

irrational fables which we then

held up high

to echo the shining…

sought after from 1096 onwards

with 60,000 strong leading the

humans have killed each other.

goldenrod---

yes, right now my whole VW-bus of a

hostile

manner,

downwind of their allergenic weapons

of mass sniffling,

the static apneatic

though

antonio stradivari did not design a violin

specifically

for playing when she is around

one finds the need to go to their closet to

get that instrument that they played when they were a

kid

to then dust it off

& start sliding the bow back and

forth

as when she gets going

the other coworkers can’t do anything but be

unwillingly

invited

to her pity party.

The Twelve Steps

The Twelve Steps

 

  1. Admitting that your life has become too reliant upon sources outside yourself & that because of this you have weakened your own ability to solve your own problems.
  2. You have come to the conclusion that there is no power outside yourself which could make things any easier for you---you are in this alone.
  3. You make the decision to take your life and make it your own.  This means removing from it…

The Sacrament of Penance

Young Davey O’Flannery sat down behind the screen.  With his hands nestled in his lap, both shaking a bit, he turned his head toward the screen, and after taking a deep breath, he motioned the cross in front of himself, physically drawing the cross across his own torso, using his index and forefinger, muttering “In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.”   

 

The voice from the other side of the screen was from an older man, a priest, and he spoke to the…
