LIME TUNA BURRITO
(5/2/07)


forget about
the answers
the questions
change so
fucking fast
that it's impossible
to put them
on paper
for a moment's
deliberation
before another
tangent appears

one
problem
points to
three others
those also
with tentacles
stretching out
in unimaginable directions
and distances
until space
is clogged
with them
entangling
the absolute
with their
confusion
and despair

these conundrums
loom too large
for any
terrestrial
celestial
quantum
or cosmological
solutions
they
hang there
obscuring the sun
wilting the life
in their
shadows

creation
is really
not that complex
our minds
lie to us
fabricating
fables of fallacy
in order to prove
our self
importance

the key
to put
the puzzle right
is always there
daring our
disbelief
preceding
the misanthropic mess
that seems to cry
for divine
intercession

my answer
tonight
is a lime tuna
burrito
and
the question
does not
concern me

I have
been accepted
by its holy simplicity
and will sleep
with the saints
tonight

my sentence
suspended
before
I could
commit
any crime
