Well, Yes and No

[Recent philosophical poem. The weed-wall image is another phone photo from Katoomba, at the back of Woolworths. I think the weed is fleabane.]

Well, Yes and No

Yes is
new grass, weeds
babies
Whitman

No is
money, death, a wall
a judge’s wig
the news

Yes
includes No

No
does not include Yes

Yes
in rags, naked,
knocks on the door of No
when you least expect it

No
just goes on forever
like a bad conversation
like television

Yes
does
not mind
this

  2. Nope. It’s just what is says Kristi. In abstract terms: just affirmation versus negation (both ontologically and as spiritual attitudes to living…)

  3. mmmmm…gotcha!
