Poetry is the sound of one heart beating. It is the song of the soul, the note bent and sustained within a singular chord that sounds but once and fades from memory forever. When you hear it struck, stop and listen. Then leave a five in the tip jar.

On second thought, make it a quarter.

The world is full of crushed hopes, broken hearts, and the ruins of dreams standing like the broken teeth in a dead man's mouth. Around every corner is another chance for disappointment and worse. But we endure it all because we refuse to believe in the final score. Because we don't have the heart to stop having hearts. And because it takes more than spilled blood and broken bone to stop the signal.

So the next time someone spills a Coke on your favorite silk blouse, think about the bright power that falls in in a million-year rain across galaxies and unimaginable expanses of empty space to light the spark in every eye. Remember that you are the product of an unbroken line of countless generations of thrivers, survivors, and badasses. And punch that careless jackass square in the nickels before the ice melts.

There's a Hindu myth about a wandering holy man who eventually finds himself wandering out onto a tongue and then is spat out into the cosmos.  He looks back and sees Rama - asleep.  If I remember correctly he found his way back in without waking the god.

What if the creator wasn't all-powerful? He kicks it off and has to stand back and watch. Or maybe he can't even watch! Maybe he's oblivious!

But what stops him from making more universes all the time, by accident? They could, like, overlap or something. That could get really complicated. No, I like my cosmology simple, something I could teach in Sunday school. Let's rule that one out.

What if he's all-seeing but not all-powerful. In fact, he's helpless once he gets it rolling. Maybe, I don't know, his performance review depends on the results and he can't do a thing about it but watch helplessly. A nervous, angsty god. Like Woody Allen but with a beard maybe. And a toga.

Eh.

Maybe he's like a complete voyeur perv. Like a reality show producer, and we're this long-running show, but in 3-D. Like a goldfish bowl for other gods. Sponsored by Gillette, or whatever gods drink—mead or something. And maybe we're about to get cancelled for poor ratings. I like that one. Write that one down.

What if he's all-powerful but not all-seeing? He can, like, totally f#ck with us but he can't tell what effect it has except when bodies float by. Or maybe he can hear our radio traffic.

Nah, that one sucks.

What if he 's all powerful but he just doesn't give a sh!t? Like, he was building this really cool sand sculpture and a bunch of ants built this ant farm in it and he's been meaning to clear it out but it took him a long time to set up and he doesn't want to disturb the nice patterns, but we're just a distraction. But not a big enough distraction to get rid of. That makes a lot of sense now that I think about it.

I tend to look at it this way...you wake up and then think about some things and then do some stuff...

Let's do lunch and have an uncomfortable conversation. Is 12:30 good for you? How about 11:45 then, I've got a ritual apology at 1:15.

Nothing special. You like Thai? Fine. Just wear something comfortable to squirm in.

To avoid alarming you, the public, we will implement these measures incrementally. This will ensure acclimation before the next increase in control over your every waking moment.

Please remain passive. Your cowardly acquiescence is appreciated.
