Further Studies in Existentialism /6

  1. The island within: the ship of the singular brought me here, or I was here all along but couldn’t articulate. There were others I had to send away. They didn’t recognize me.

 

  1. The caregiver doesn’t recognize the beloved. He plays her favorite music, so she has something to hold on to as a steadying branch amidst the fuzzy confusion—and so she will take the collection of pills without biting his hand.

 

  1. With the right haircut, I may be someone different for a while. Is it a coincidence that the hair grays more on the right; the right side of the brain overplayed?

 

  1. How many days can one wear a bathrobe before it is clinical? The philosopher wonders, unable to do laundry. The Sisyphus uphill—at an obtuse angle more difficult to navigate in daylight.

 

  1. There is no noun form to express being overwhelmed. The overwhelm-ation subtracted her somehow.

 

  1. Next month, I will believe in something. I am almost certain.

 

  1. I disappeared again. Damn it. I’ll have to put posters up on the telephone poles and social media. Free lunch if you find me. Bring your spiritual medicine kit; sign the nondisclosure agreement. We can have sushi or tacos—your call.

 

  1. Some people are linear, some circles, some Mobius strips.

 

  1. Are these notes/studies in line with Stevens’ “supreme fiction” or are they just to get by?

 

  1. Drinking coffee, the philosopher knows he is alive and not getting thrown around in dreamscapes, lost in sound paintings.

 

  1. The dog can hear me chewing from the other side of the House. After our long winter hibernation, we are hungry all the time.
