when people continue to push the wrong button
over and over and over again
attempting to turn out the light
opening the garage door instead
it’s clear they need more help
and calls for drastic measures.
they may not be sure what this is
but at least
they are now sure what it is not.
“there is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.”
-sir arthur conan doyle
“in the case of news, we should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation.”
today we found a beautiful flower that survived
under the snow and ice and rain and arctic temperatures of january.
were very surprised.
it must be enchanted.
“the only words that ever satisfied me as describing nature
are the terms used in fairy books, charm, spell, enchantment.
they express the arbitrariness of the fact and its mystery.”
-g. k. chesterton
