Some things can not be spoken directly and
the truth of the matter is that it takes lies,
fictions, circumlocutions to do justice to
apparently what COUNTS most. True?
offensive just shy of transgressing these 2 lines
(wherever they might be said to be drawn)
that THE GOOD STUFF begins to reveal itself.
Frontiers yet unknown until crossed, trespassed,
“THE GOOD STUFF,” do we? Let IT be loose
and ill-defined for now.
We all know what it refers to in general; it’s
when we start trying to get SPECIFIC that the
confusion might be said to generate. The
more specific we get about these LOFTY
AND HIGH ~MATTERS (truth & honesty;
love & lies, goodness & beauty, atrocities
& the horrors…) the more we generate
dissension, the more disagreement the more
diversity and diversion, squabbles and scruples,
threat and terror:
determine the Good Stuff among our selves and
SELVES. Yes? Consider as a rule (for the moment),
that in trying to argue-out and communicate what’s
GOOD and what’s NOT:
the more GENERAL the less Trouble
of where it starts hitting the fan, just short of where
dissension breaks out and tensions crack open—just
at those borders that IT gets interesting, true? IT.
Leave IT undefined for now.
