Is It Relevant

October 21, 2012

Pride swallows itself
When it knows weakness.
But snakes can eat only their tails.
In such moments I think
This disease
Is not the indifference of Fate.
It’s the indifference of my activity.
But this assumption of Fate or God
Stands lurking as naked assumption.
I find it necessary.
If what compels us now came from what we did earlier
We don’t know what compelled that.
Science won’t tell us anything
As long as chemical correlations
Are seen as causes
For experience.

But maybe it’s true
Or maybe it’s paradox
When I speak as though we had chosen.
Universally unshared,
We will have something in common
Or everything.
If so, your irrelevant choice
Will synchronize with my irrelevant voice.
