Five odd things you may or may not want to know so feel free to do or don’t…

Five odd things you may or may not want to know so feel free to do or don’t – especially when you realize the I keeps getting in the way…

1. I have deep and marveled things to say but have found no way to say them.

2. I had deep and marveled things to say, and finally found a way to say them, but they were ridiculous, so I stopped talking.

3. I have no deep or marveled things to say – no surprise there – and saying nothing makes perfect sense. I say nothing better than something – even if that isn’t deep, and certainly not marveled.

4. I wish I had deep and marveled things to say which someone might remember thirty years from now, even if only for a moment – looking out a window onto a field, as if on the verge of almost knowing something, but then a knock at the door would set things right – voices in another room and the window empty – the field, stirred a bit in a cool November wind, then still.

5. Once, I tried to write something deep and marveled, but the blank page reminded me that the possibility of writing is always stronger than the words , so I put down the pen, closed my journal, and drank some coffee – dark roast in a cup with a leaf burned into it – or at least that’s what I remember.
