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

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

includes No

does not include Yes

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

just goes on forever
like a bad conversation
like television

not mind

  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!
