Be Practical if Not Pious
Turning the Other Cheek is Practical
as Hell—however pious it might
sound. If someone calls you oaf,
stupid, insensitive, mean, infinitive-
splitter —what are you going to say ?
No I am not! You’re wrong!
Take that back!
Has anyone noticed how much
contra-diction goes on ?
Discrepancies? Peoplesaying one
thing & doing another? Politicians
esp. o those bad boys bad boys
as if they were hypocrites. I
can’t believe it. I’m not believing
it. Why can’t we all just get along?
Do right? My FBook burns-up
with pants on fire, inequity and
injustice. I love to catchem in their
wrong-doing. I think it’s because
families don’t eat supper together
so much, photo-shopping. Body-
shaming.. Smoking vapor, eating
meat. Reasons why. It’s not my fault.
When I was manic I could read
your mind, walk on water, play
tennis like a sonofagun, see
personal signals in road signs,
solve crimes, predict touchdowns,
make total sense & more out of
any text and context.find myself
in sync with tv programs and
news casts, resurrect dead
classes .& walk around beaming.
When I was depressed I would
weep in class, drag my ass, wonder
why, breathe in a bag, listen to
car radio songs for clues, faint
signs and recollections of aims,
goals, & measurable objectives,
light a candle. Curse the darkness.
