Cabalistic Crapola
(10/26/2020)


I understand

I really
do

we’re only
human
after all

searching
for secrets
in simplicity

for personal
messages
in theatrical
treatises

for solace
in an infinite
jumble
of characters
and numbers

we want
to matter

we need
to be
special

a beginning
or an end
within this
morass
of middle

we look
to literature

to religion

to science

to history

anything
that might
look back
at us
in the singular

pointing
in validation
toward our
selves

instead
of looking
ourselves
into our
souls

where
our only
answers
can lie
