Stalagmite

 

 Variation on Monolith by Ted Berrigan (15 November 1934 – 4 July 1983).

 

“If I thought of God as another being like myself, outside myself, only infinitely more powerful, then I would regard it as my duty to defy him.”

— Ludwig Wittgenstein

The fight call is STICKS.                     

The left wall is FAR OUT.  

The back wall is FICTION.   

I CAN SEE backwards.   

 

The FEELING is DRY. 

The Floor is QUICK. 

The ART is THIN. 

The LIMELIGHT is WHITE.    

 

The WARRANT is ECLECTIC. 

The POWER is ON.

The Subtext is SENT. 

She is POISED. 

  

She is Listening. 

This is IT. 

It is EAR. 

She has been WATCHING.   

 

She has Had To Think. 

It is Done.

It is CONTINGENT.

It is NOT REFLECTIVE, but   

 

It Damn Well Will Do.
