It’s like a big blank screen

with a blinking cursor in it

waiting for you to type—


but no matter how much

you type

the cursor keeps blinking



because that’s life

that’s us…


a joke without a punchline


a shot long in the blank


a rolling stone made of moss


the cud God is chewing…

And all the people you meet are but different bodies of yourself

the same depthless presence we are—


we cannot give anything to each other that we do not already have

we can trigger highs and lows with a vengeance but ultimately

we are all the same one thing interacting with itself


the possibility of our interactions is the payoff

the joy of creation is the payoff

the singular moments of our encounters is the payoff

giving yourself chances is the payoff


it all happens here

there is nowhere else

but here.
