AUTOPSY
(8/9/15)


simply

only

just

literary
ways
to reduce
the complex
to smaller

more
thought sized
portions

a way
to look
at a written
element
and say

"here it is

we can
understand
this"

unfortunately
the whole
from which
we have ripped
this easy piece
has not really
given up
its hold
upon that
which belongs

we can
fool ourselves
into thinking
that if
we've understood
this one
little
iota

that the
entirety
from which
it came
would be well
within
our cognitive
grasp
as well

but
the component
seems to change
when back
within
the aggregate

any meaning
derived
slips away
and we are again
mired
within an unfathomable
multiplicity

we are
fools

we feel
ourselves
apart

when
in reality
we are attached
to the body
as much
as our tiny
slice
under investigation

we will
eternally
have our egos
as blind spots
when examining
our realities

we
the doctor
deluded
by self
diagnosis

we
the ever suffering
patient
beneath
our own scalpel

quit cutting
and quietly enjoy
what little
time
that we have

surgery
is closed

no more
