Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Serious business

nothing is not a thing
no thing ever is
just a passing fancy-feast
for the benefit of squid

zero isn't really a number
numbers aren't all that great
containing matter in a balance sheet
doesn't merit a second date

rational thought is lumbering
on its massive gut
undulating to disneyland
and leaving a massive rut

smile like you mean it
frown with grave concern
nod your head before you're dead
give someone else a turn

terrorize your shadow
trace the vanishing sky
nothing is not a thing
now do not wonder why
